What's New:

Clinical Care Standards* to help medical professionals care for women with Heavy Menstrual Bleeding (HMB) were recently released. They recommend informed choice and shared decision-making between patients and doctors. Additionally, hysterectomy for HMB is only recommended when other treatments are ineffective or unsuitable. Uterine-preserving alternatives, such as an endometrial ablation, are recommended for women with HMB of benign causes, if clinically appropriate. View the Clinical Care Standards

Impact of heavy periods

Heavy periods (medically known as 'abnormal uterine bleeding' or 'menorrhagia') can affect our everyday lives socially, emotionally and physically. As well as experiencing heavy blood loss, our periods can also be painful and make us tired, irritable, and even anaemic, not to mention the embarrassment that heavy bleeding can cause.1

Don't suffer in silence – you don't have to live with heavy periods.
