Course Summary

While bipolar disorder is a mental illness that affects both men and women, clinicians who provide care for female patients with bipolar disorder must consider the unique manifestations and treatment needs of the condition in this patient population. Not only do women express symptoms of bipolar disorder differently than men, they are also at risk of other gender-related complications, such as hormone level fluctuations and the effects of the disorder on lifestyle. Women and men are diagnosed with bipolar disorder equally. Women also have unique needs that must be considered with treatment of bipolar disorder, conditions such as pregnancy, menopause, and secretion of hormones that are particular to their gender. Prompt recognition of bipolar disorder, continued monitoring for changes, and ongoing communication about disease progression and treatment effectiveness are all essential elements for management of bipolar disorder in women.
