Another reason (as if anyone would need one) for women to battle against depression with everything in their arsenal is the fact that it triggers early menopause.

A study from Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital shows that women who suffer from depression are twice as likely to enter early menopause as women without mood disorders.

Since early menopause has been linked to heart disease and other serious illnesses, researchers urge women to seek medical help with their depression. Of course, anyone – male or female – should take depression seriously. It wants to take the smile off your face and the laughter out of your life, don’t allow it to do either!
