Take the Talking Red Symptom Checker
Talking Red is a campaign by The Haemophilia Society to encourage women and girls to talk about their periods and consider whether they might have heavy periods. Some women with heavy periods may have an underlying bleeding disorder. This tool is designed to ask you questions about your period as well as other symptoms of a bleeding disorder which may help you to discuss your symptoms with a GP. While a bleeding disorder may be the cause of your symptoms not all women with heavy periods have a bleeding disorder and other causes are common. Whatever the cause, your GP can signpost you to the right specialist care, and may be able to offer immediate help through a prescription to help heavy menstrual bleeding. This symptom tracker will give you guidance and empower you with information so that if you do go on to visit your GP, you receive the right treatment.
We will start by asking you a series of multiple choice questions about common symptoms of bleeding disorders and then we will ask some questions about your periods.If you are unsure about an answer select No and move on to the next question.
