Have the confidence to wear white again. If you experience heavy periods, we want you to know that you are not alone.
This is a common problem that affects 1 in 5 women aged 35-551 and there are ways of helping you to resolve this often painful condition.
The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care published a Clinical Care Standard on Heavy Menstrual Bleeding in October 2017 to ensure women are offered the least invasive and most effective treatment appropriate to their clinical needs. These guidelines also help to ensure women have the opportunity to make an informed choice from the range of treatments suitable to their individual situation. We recommend you take a look. View the Clinical Care Standard.
Heavy periods (medically known as 'abnormal uterine bleeding') 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
