Dr Jacqueline Maybin, Senior Research Fellow and Honorary Consultant Gynaecologist at MRC Centre for Reproductive Health, said:

I was delighted to be given the opportunity to collaborate with Eilish McColgan to raise awareness of problem periods. We all need to talk more openly about periods and smash the stigma associated with menstruation.

Hearing about the impact that periods have highlights why the research carried out by our research group at CRH is so important and continued funding is crucial. 

We hope to improve the ways in which we identify and treat heavy menstrual bleeding so that  women can receive the help they deserve.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to Eilish for her part in encouraging an honest and open discussion. Hopefully this will help to get people talking about menstruation in schools, the workplace and at home. 

Support and guidance about menstruation for all ages and genders is offered via the HOPE website – have a browse and feel free to share.
