Abstract

An 18-year-old girl is a freshman in community college and has a history of focal epilepsy of left frontal origin due to cortical dysplasia. She is managed on oxcarbazepine and has remained seizure free in the past year. She informs you that she is sexually active and has been in stable relationship with her boyfriend in the past 6 months. She is asking you for advice on starting contraception. What form of contraception are you most likely to recommend to her? What will be your advice if she was on lamotrigine, topiramate, or levetiracetam?.
