Being around more ladies with seizures then guys, I knew a long time ago that they are much more likly to have seizures durring their cycle. So this is not something that is a suprise to me and I'm sure it's not to the ladies.
I have a hard time understanding why it takes reserchers so much time to get to the same conclution.
I respect and I grateful the reserchers & applaude them for what they have done. But some things don't take years os study to deside. Like this one.
