psychogenic psychosis



I was just wondering if anyone knows what this really is / means? I was admitted following the birth of my daughter and they said I had psychosis but it wasn't the 'puerpural psychosis' that you find typically after giving birth but a 'psychogenic psychosis'. Just wondered what the difference is with this and other types of psychosis and whether I am likely to experience it again? And whether it could be linked to the paranoid / delusions I sometimes get bouts of? Thanks
