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.

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


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


  • More than 60% have had to miss social or athletic events1
  • About 80% report avoiding sex1
  • 33% have been forced to miss work2


  • 77% have depression or moodiness1
  • 75% feel anxious2
  • 57% report a lack of confidence during their period1

Heavy periods are not something with which you have to live. Today, there are a number of effective treatment options available.
