Abstract
Objective: This study evaluated the current state of anxiety and depression levels in patients with HG and TA and compared the prevalence of anxiety and depression levels with healthy pregnant controls. The aim of this prospective casecontrol study was to investigate the possible relationship between anxiety, depression and HG and TA and compare the results with healthy pregnant controls.

Patients and Methods: A prospective case–control study was performed at our tertiary referral centre. 84 consecutive women with HG and 88 consecutive women with TA constituted our study group and 98 healthy pregnant women constituted our control group. Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) were administered to patients during the psychiatric interview for the anxiety and depression evaluation.

Results: The mean BAI scores in HG, TA and healthy control groups were 17.34 ± 8.97, 17.23 ± 8.71 and 7.03 ± 5.45, respectively. The mean BDI scores in HG, TA and healthy control groups were 15.54 ± 7.81, 16.27 ± 6.72 and 6.68 ± 5.28, respectively.

Conclusion: The findings of this study indicated a potential link between HG, TA and anxiety and depression disorders. Therefore, patients with HG and TA during pregnancy should be evaluated in terms of anxiety and depression disorders as much as their medical conditions. Medical professionals should be sensitive to psychological consequences of HG and TA.
