I'm asking this for someone else. What are the birth control options for someone with a Seizure disorder? NFP is NOT an option as person has severe mental retardation but guardians do not want her getting pregnant (she's mentally age 6)

Seriously?

DEPO DEPO DEPO!!!!

i know many people do not like this method but this can be a great for someone with seizure disorders and developmental problems. it actually raises the seizure threshold and is recommended for people with seizures and the side effect of minimal-to-no periods can be a great relief for people with MR. hope this helps.
