Teenager w/Seizures and now missed periods

New to the Forum...

So here's the story...my 13 year old daughter started having seizures 6 months ago and she has been dragged from one doctor to the next (poor thing), still no reasons as to why; but she is on heavy doses of generic keppra.

She confided in me in a few days ago that her period is late. She says she isn't pregnant (and for as shy as she is, I know she is 300% not sexually active). A year ago when her cycles were irregular we asked a doctor about birth control to regulate them & were told no it isn't a good idea to put her on so young. Yet...I have no answers for her.

I am sure she is stressed about the newly developed seizures, but she must continue taking those meds. :(

Any other moms out there who have a similar situation? What was the end result for you? Could it be the meds? Could these be completely unrelated things? Is there something we need to think about or try before hauling her back to another doctor?

Thanks for sharing your ideas! Michelle in Reno
