Many women may be suffering from undiagnosed ADHD

Some doctors believe that many women have undiagnosed ADHD Ė up to 5% of adults. Undiagnosed women may have difficulty with time management, forgetfulness, feelings of powerlessness, depression, and anxiousness. ADHD can be affected by hormone fluctuations and thus symptoms may be alleviated during pregnancy and menopause may worsen the symptoms.
