We consider two different definitions for loop corrections to the primordial power spectra. One of these is to simply correct the mode functions in the tree order relations using the linearized effective field equations. The second definition involves the spatial Fourier transform of the two-point correlator. Although the two definitions agree at tree order, we show that they disagree at one loop using the Schwinger-Keldysh formalism, so there are at least two plausible ways of loop correcting the tree order result. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each.
