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

t 22 million women in America may suffer from HMB,(2)(3) however, only 11 percent seek treatment.(4)  A few of the signs and symptoms are:  heavy menstrual flow that interferes with regular lifestyle, feeling tired or short of breath – the symptoms of anemia, using double sanitary protection to control menstrual flow, and soaking through one or more tampons or pads per hour.(5)

Historically, these sufferers have been told their only options for dealing with unruly periods involved hormonal contraceptives, surgery such as hysterectomy, or pain relievers like ibuprofen.  Recently, the FDA approved LYSTEDA™ (tranexamic acid) tablets, the only oral non-hormonal and non-surgical therapy indicated specifically for the treatment of women with cyclic HMB.  In clinical studies, LYSTEDA significantly reduced menstrual blood loss (MBL) over three and six cycles of use compared with placebo, with the reduction seen as early as the first cycle of use.  It also significantly reduced limitations on social, leisure, and physical activities in women with cyclic HMB.  LYSTEDA tablets are taken only during the menstrual period for up to five days.

Living With HMB:

The key findings from the Living with HMB survey include:

  • The vast majority of women (92%) are very frustrated by having HMB, and nearly nine out of ten (89%) say their life during their period would greatly improve if they could reduce their menstrual flow.  During their period, 82% of women with HMB are often anxious about managing their flow.
  • Nearly two in three women with HMB (64%) report that the condition has a significant negative impact on their social, leisure, and physical activities.
  • HMB affects relationships. More than half (55 percent) of women who experience HMB report that the condition negatively affects their sex life, and these women are nearly four time
