Women who used serotonin reuptake inhibitors are over 200% as likely to experience preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) compared to women who did not take these medications.[1] Thirteen percent of pregnant women use antidepressants. Serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressants provoke an inflammatory response by increasing p38-MAPK activity, specifically in the amniotic sac of human fetal membranes contributing to an early 'water breaking.'
