Hello @hoochinmama and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I am sure this must be very concerning for you. It was great that you noticed her menstrual cycle as a trigger for seizures. Can you confirm if your daughter diagnosed with Catamenial Epilepsy specifically?

For Catamenial Epilepsy, birth control can help due to the progesterone. It may be the case that she needs a different type of birth control due to her changing hormonal needs. Have you considered revisiting this as a starting point to see if a change in dosage would be beneficial?
