Heavy Menstrual Bleeding

What is Heavy Menstrual Bleeding?

1 in 5 women suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding. Many women begin to experience heavy and/or irregular bleeding in their 30s and 40s, as they begin to get closer to menopause. Heavy periods are more than just a hassle – they take a physical, social, and emotional toll as well.

Physical

  • Many feel tired and nauseated

Social

  • More than 60% have had to miss social or athletic events1
  • About 80% report avoiding sex1
  • 33% have been forced to miss work
