Once started, it tends to run the same course as any other depression, and that tends to last 9 months or more, and nasty months at that. So of course it is always wise to get a proper expert assessment and tratment if one suspects PND. If you're wondering how long after birth PND can start, that;s also surprisingly complicated and it can start months after the birth has occurred.
