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, and as they begin to get closer to menopause. Heavy periods are more than just a hassle - they take a physical, social, and emotional toll on you as well.

Studies show heavy menstrual bleeding can affect women in a number of ways:

Physical

  • Many feel tired and nauseated
  • Many experience bad cramps
  • Many have headaches

Social

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

Emotional

  • 77% have depression or moodiness
  • 75% feel anxious
  • 57% report a lack of confidence during their period

Heavy periods are not something with which you have to live. Today, there are a number of effective treatment options available. Please schedule a visit with your doctor to discuss.
