Esther’s story: ‘PCOS pushed me from bleeding for six weeks to no period for six months’
Millions of women, girls and people who menstruate suffer with severe period pain, heavy bleeding or irregular cycles that disrupt their lives. Instead of getting the treatment and support they desperately need, they’re often dismissed and told it’s “just a period”.
Nobody should suffer from period symptoms holding them back.
Our "Just a Period” campaign shares information and resources – giving you answers to your questions about periods and showing you where to find help.
Painful periods and heavy bleeding aren’t ‘just’ signs that you’re on. These may be signs that you need diagnosis, treatment and support for a gynaecological condition. We’re here to help.
Learn about your period and whether your symptoms could be signs of a gynaecological condition. Learn about treatment options, self-care tips, and how to get help.
Watch our webinars with medical experts, and sign up for updates.
Watch videos and read about women's experiences of severe period pain, heavy bleeding, and irregular cycles. Find out how they were diagnosed with endometriosis, adenomyosis, fibroids or PCOS.
We are the only UK charity funding pioneering research across all of women’s gynaecological and reproductive health. We have funded over £67million into finding new tests, treatments and cures since 1964.
