Heavy Menstrual Bleeding

NICE defines HMB as ‘excessive menstrual blood loss which interferes with a woman’s physical, social, emotional and/or material quality of life. It can occur alone or in combination with other symptoms.’[2]

HMB is an under-estimated condition causing significant impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of women. Despite affecting more than 1 in 5 women[3], nearly two thirds (62%)[4] do not realise that heavy periods are a treatable medical condition.

Interventions in primary care are critical to help improve women’s quality of life, including discussion of the different treatment options available.

One option to consider is endometrial ablation – a one-off, quick procedure with an average treatment time of 90 seconds that can be offered in an outpatient setting. Learn more about this and who the procedure is suitable for during the webinar.
