Abstract

A 46-year-old woman is starting to undergo menopause. She has a history of secondary generalized tonic-clonic seizures which started at age 14 coinciding with the onset of her menstrual periods. In the past her seizures were more intense and frequent around the time of her ovulation. Her seizures were also particularly challenging to control during her two pregnancies. She is in your office for a follow-up visit and is asking for your advice regarding what to expect to happen to her seizures in the next few years and whether her seizures will improve or worsen?.
