These reports on the birth rate have been coming in for some time now but few understand the role antidepressants are playing in this. For instance, Utah, Arizona & Idaho, each with a high population of Mormons, would have had much higher birth rates if it were not for the high use of antidepressants among Mormon women in those states who in the past have always been known to have higher birth rates.
And why is that? Because serotonin was initially used to put pregnant women into labor. So as they take these antidepressant drugs designed to increase serotonin levels the risk of miscarriage is increased. So even if the drugs have not completely robbed them of the ability to have any sexual feelings as in PSSD (Post SSRI Sexual Dysfunction) so that they can actually get pregnant, the drugs can abort that fetus resulting in miscarriage. And if that happens early in the first few weeks of a pregnancy it may even go unnoticed as a miscarriage.
