May is Women's Health Month

Some highlights below:

Most of what we know about ADHD stems from research done on men and boys. We know relatively little about ADHD in women, but the research that exists is sobering.

  • Women* with ADHD experience more psychological distress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and eating disorders than their male counterparts.

  • They are more likely than men with ADHD to suffer with low self-esteem, self-harming behaviors, poor social relationships, and emotional dysregulation.

  • For many women, ADHD symptoms become debilitating as hormonal levels shift dramatically each month. Women with ADHD also are at elevated risk for unwanted pregnancy and sexual violence.

From puberty to menopause, and PMDD to age-related cognitive decline, the research need is vast. [DON'T FORGET PREGNANCY AND POSTPARTUM)]
