Women with ADHD face major struggle on a daily basis, but most of these women don’t know the real issue behind their battles. They feel the effects of it but don’t know the name. They may call it things like anxiety or depression, not knowing that it’s actually ADHD. In fact, research estimates that up to 75% of women with ADHD are still undiagnosed.

If You’re Ready to be Evaluated for ADHD…
Women face a bit of an uphill battle getting diagnosed in part because of the fact that it does look a bit different in us and doctors are still a bit behind in their understanding of ADHD. Add on top of that the fact that stimulants are the first line treatment and are also a controlled substance and it’s a recipe for difficulty.
But don’t let that stop you. The key is to find a doctor who is more familiar with ADHD in order to get a good evaluation. If you’re not sure how to go about finding one, check out my free guide on Diagnosing ADHD in Women. It includes ways to find a good doctor, as well as a self report to fill out and take with you to your appointment, some research to share with your doctor in case, despite your best efforts, you still find yourself with a doctor who’s a bit behind the research, and more.
