The Face of ADHD in Women

Studies show that adult ADHD is more likely to go undiagnosed in women compared to men partly because ADHD was primarily thought to be more prevalent in men. While men are more likely to exhibit the Hyperactive/Impulsive Type of ADHD, women are more commonly known to have the Inattentive Type of ADHD which makes it a burden for them to stay focused, organised, listen and retain things successfully in memory. ADHD in women brings more evident symptoms of inattention, disorganisation and restlessness.

Women with ADHD are more inclined to feeling dysphoria, depression and anxiety. They are also prone to having lower self-esteem and developing coping strategies that are more focused on compensating unfinished and forgotten tasks rather than actually solving an existing problem.

If you are a woman and has undiagnosed or untreated ADHD in adulthood, then these are some of the common problems that you might be struggling with:

  • Difficulty in functioning in a busy and noisy surrounding resulting to unproductivity during working hours
  • You quickly become too emotional and petty things push you over the top
  • You find it hard to settle and relax
  • Places like your room or office are often untidy and disorganised
  • You find it hard to remember where you have put things
  • Easily forgets important appointments and events or even an ingredient to a meal you have been putting thought about cooking
  • Impulse buying and shopping unnecessary things
  • You easily feel overwhelmed, whether with people or with doing things like going to grocery stores
  • Always running late for meetings and having a hard time finishing projects and meeting deadlines
  • Constantly feeling “zoned out”, whether in a middle of conversation or in the middle of doing something

Adult Assessments

We normally ask if it is possible for you to get some collateral history, preferably from someone who has known you since childhood. This helps the doctor to get a better objective understanding of how your ADHD symptoms may have affected you throughout your life.


The sooner you get diagnosed and start on a treatment plan for Adult ADHD the better it will be in terms of making positive life changes. However, it is important to remember that is never too late to get help for Adult ADHD. We have had many clients come to The ADHD Centre in their retirement seeking help and have worked successfully with them to help them get on top of their symptoms so that they are leading a fuller and richer life.

Psychology and Psychiatry

Studies show that adults with ADHD have an increased risk of also suffering from other psychological problems: particularly depression, anxiety and substance abuse. This is often because their ADHD went undiagnosed and untreated in childhood and they may be using substances to self-medicate.
