Is your period affecting your
ability to live your life?
Are your periods painful?
Do they often last more than seven days—sometimes more than two weeks? Do you find yourself having to change your protection too often, avoiding certain activities that might cause accidents or missing work?
The reality is that 1 in 5 women suffer
from heavy periods.1
According to The Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada, up to 30% of women will seek medical assistance for the problem of heavy menstrual bleeding during their reproductive years.2
Heavy periods can wreak havoc.
In our 30s and 40s, as we approach menopause, we’re more likely to develop abnormal menstrual bleeding. Unfortunately, having heavy periods means a lot more than simply heavy bleeding; heavy periods can wreak havoc in our lives.
According to a 2018 survey3 of Canadian women who suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding, half of women say that heavy periods impact on their overall lifestyle, more than half say their physical wellbeing is affected and 1 in 5 say heavy periods have affected their career or choice of jobs.
