What is Menstrual Matters?

Menstrual-Matters is non-profit research and information hub that aims to raise awareness about the role of the menstrual cycle, and hormonal medications, in a variety of chronic ill-health symptoms.

Why is Menstrual Matters needed?

A combination of social, economic, and political factors have resulted in an inadequate diagnostic process to differentiate between the symptoms of various female-prevalent health issues, and those triggered, worsened, or caused by the menstrual cycle (or hormonal medication).

What is the impact of misdiagnosis (i.e. failing to spot a hormonal factor in ill-health)?

The misdiagnosis, or a lack of diagnosis, of hormone-related symptoms can have a serious impact on patients and the healthcare sector; especially in terms of costs, health outcomes, patient well-being, and societal perceptions of female-prevalent chronic ill-health conditions.
