For the women out there that notice more seizures dying around their cycle, have you tried to take progesterone and has it helped? I'm thinking to take an injection without my doctors permission I feel they know nothing about hormone related seizures
Progesterone is a natural anticonvulsant at the correct dose for certain seisure types, this has to be matched to your estrogen cycle as levels change naturally so is hard to do properly, too low and your going to cause seisures hormone issues and sterility too high and your going to cause a whole shed load more issues .... do yourself a favour ..... DONT mess around with your basic hormones, the basic principle of a woman is to reproduce when you mess with the female reproductive hormones the rest of the system starts to have problems that get worse over time, all anti convulsants work on different receptors in the brain, you realistically need an mri, eeg, and full blood work up to find out accurately which receptors are causing the issues ... and then the correct steps can be taken to solve the situation
I tried a few years ago when my seizures were getting worse and it didn’t work. If anything, they increased.
Did not for me. Tried a few months ago. Good luck.
With catamenial epilepsy, yes. But not with all epilepsy types
I have been on progesterone birth control consistently for 7 years and have had no problems or more seizures around where my pseudo period would be. Hope that helps.
