AbstractThe onset of pregnancy in a woman with epilepsy is not only desirable but also a very important stage in life. Therefore, a patient of fertile age needs to explain immediately at her first visit to an epileptologist that this event, like any good impromptu, should be planned. The ability to have children with epilepsy in women is reduced by an average of 2 times compared with the general population. This is due to both social and organic reasons. Pregnancy is contraindicated only for women with severe epilepsy, when the use of AED does not allow avoiding frequent generalized seizures, in addition, the woman has severe mental disorders. Epilepsy is not a contraindication to IVF, although one should not forget that to stimulate the production of an egg, women who are candidates for IVF are massively injected with hormonal drugs. This can sometimes trigger seizures.
