Landmark National Survey Conducted by Harris Interactive® Sheds Light on Hidden Problem of Heavy Monthly Periods
Date:9/14/2010

Sometimes I have to stay home from work.  When I can go to work I have to skip meetings or other events and stay in my office.  I visit the restroom up to 10 times during an 8 hour work day. Age 46, Very Heavy, Impact: A Great Deal

I usually have to call in to work. I can't play in the park with my kids or go swimming with them because I'm afraid that I will soak through my pants and everyone will see. Age 22, Very Heavy, Impact: A Great Deal
