Epilepsy is an important clinical interdisciplinary problem. It is known that about half of epileptic patients are women, and over 40% of them are women of reproductive age. The problem of reproductive health of women with epilepsy involves individual choice of contraceptive method that is acceptable for a given patient, depending on receiving antiepileptic therapy. Currently, the questions of choice of contraceptive methods for epileptic women using various antiepileptic drugs are poorly understood, and planning for pregnancy requires joint counseling and management by neurologist and obstetrician-gynecologist.
