My interest in ADHD stems from my own personal experience and awareness of ADHD traits, which became apparent during the COVID lockdown in perimenopause. At that time, I could not find many people in the medical community who were assessing or talking about perimenopause/menopause and ADHD. In this session, I discuss : • How perimenopause/ menopause can exacerbate ADHD? • Overlap between ADHD and Menopause • Role of hormones in ADHD • Hormonal mood problems in women with ADHD
