What are heavy periods?
About 10 million women suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding.1 Many women begin to experience heavy and/or irregular bleeding in their 30’s and 40’s, 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.
