Epilepsy Ireland is delighted to announce the launch of our new Women and Epilepsy resource.

This guide has been written for women with epilepsy, to help navigate the many concerns and challenges women face in managing their health and well-being. Women with epilepsy often require specially managed treatments. Women with epilepsy have to consider the effects the condition has on sexual development, the menstrual cycle, contraception, fertility, pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, baby care and the menopause.

Of all the individuals diagnosed with epilepsy in Ireland, about 25% – or 10,000 – are women of childbearing potential. In today's society choice is of vital importance for women, including those affected by epilepsy.
