Each month, women experience menstrual symptoms that can be less than pleasant. Women often think that what they experience is normal, but that is not always the case. Ask yourself:
- Are you bothered by the amount of bleeding or the pain that you experience during your period?
- Does your period make you feel depressed, tired or moody?
- Do you change your pad or tampon more often than every one or two hours?
- Does your period last more than a full week (7 days)?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have heavy menstrual bleeding, a condition that affects 1 out of every 5 women. Take this quiz to find out if your heavy periods are a medical condition. If they are, please contact us, and let us help you get back to normal.
