Hi dhruvita,

Thanks for posting. Have you been under treatment for postpartum depression for over three years now? Postpartum depression generally last from a few months up to a year. What can happen is that you may be suffering from depression, but it is no longer considered PPD. Different things trigger mood swings for different people-- finances, work, whatever causes you stress, etc. 

Please continue to go to therapy if you feel like nothing is improving by seeing him/her occasionally.
