I'm wondering why are women much more prone to borderline personality disorder then men?

One thing seems to be clear however, and that is as a society we are more likely to see girls sexually abused more than boys. Many men with borderline personality disorder are labeled criminals and sociopaths. It seems very trendy to label women as borderline and quite often their underlying antisocial personality disorder is simply overlooked. We also incarcerate far more men than women so that the statistics may be shifted towards making it appear that more women are borderline.

What are the signs you have borderline personality disorder?

Mental Health Dx: To be sure, you need to work with a psychiatrist or other mental health professional -- and the criteria are as dr. Ali shows them. Before that though, you might notice extremely volatile relationships where you idolize people one time, and scorn them the next. You may feel angry or empty much of the time. You may be impulsive, and self-harming -- especially if someone threatens to leave you.

Is borderline personality disorder inherited?

Possible: Two studies by distel et al. In 2008 found a strong genetic contribution to borderline personality dx. However, it is early in this research to be confident about such conclusions. Nonetheless, it would not surprise me if more research supported these findings, given the known genetic contribution to other disorders such as schizophrenia, anxiety (gad, ptsd), bipolar dx, and adhd.

Can borderline personality disorder be inherited?

Borderline PD: Highly unlikely that there is any genetic component to it. BPD generally results from significant early life abuse/maltreatment. But an expert trauma therapist will take a thorough history because many patients diagnosed with BPD should be recognized as actually complex trauma. In the case of trauma, expert trauma treatment is the long term answer to reduce the distress and symptoms--don'tgive up!
