"Epilepsy in Women" a program for doctors and nurses was held at Kauvery Hospital on 24th November 2015. The program was conducted by Dr. Prithika Chary, Chief Neurologist, Kauvery Hospital.
"Women with epilepsy face unique problems related to their hormonal cycles. The life of a woman consists of several challenges - childhood, adolescence and menarche (the first menstrual period), childbearing and contraception, fertility and pregnancy issues, and menopause or cessation of menstrual periods. The two main female hormones oestrogen and progesterone do influence epilepsy" Dr. Prithika Chary.
