What is the cause?

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

BPD tends to occur more often in women than men. This may be related to genetic or hormonal influences. There may be an innate predisposition to this disorder in some people. The cause of BPD is unknown. People with BPD are impulsive in areas that have a potential for self-harm, such as drug use, drinking, and other risk-taking behaviours. Risk factors for BPD include abandonment issues in childhood or adolescence, sexual abuse, disrupted family life, and poor communication within the family.
