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

s as likely as those whose sex life has not been negatively impacted by HMB (44 percent vs. 12 percent) to report that their relationship with their significant other has also been affected.
  • Many women are unable to manage their regular responsibilities because of HMB.  Nearly half (47%) cannot adequately perform everyday household chores.  More than a third (37%) report that HMB negatively impacts their job, and 19% say it affects their ability to care for their family.
  • HMB also has a significant financial impact.  Of note, 5% of women with HMB have lost their jobs because they had to miss work due to their bleeding.
  • For the vast majority of women, HMB makes them feel drained (92%), while 84% are always afraid it will show and others will know.  However, many women have simply accepted their HMB as a normal part of their life.  
  • Remarkably, 37% have never even talked to a healthcare professional about their HMB.  The main reasons are that they think their heavy menstrual bleeding is normal (42%) and/or they think there is nothing their doctor can do about it (41%).
  • Some women who haven't discussed HMB with a healthcare professional (21%) are simply too embarrassed to talk about their condition. Nearly two-thirds of all women with HMB (65%) would feel more comfortable discussing their HMB if there was greater awareness about the condition.
  • About nine out of ten women with HMB wish there were more non-surgical (90%) and/or non-hormonal (89%) treatment options.
