I have some concerns and questions which I would really like some answers to, if anyone can help.
I have been with my boyfriend for two years now and we are getting to the stage of talking about having children but we are both concerned about what the chances of our child having epilepsy.
So my boyfriend has primary generalized epilspsy. He has had seizures from when he was a little boy. His mother had petit mal but grew out of it and no longer has seizures. Currently my other half takes 100g of lamotrigine twice a day. One in the morning and one in the evening. This controls his seizures and hasn’t had once since taking the medication.
I have no existing medical conditions and have no history of any genetic conditions which could affect my child. But my other half having epilepsy, what are the chances of our child develping it?
