We are pleased to be able to share our FY2018 Menstrual Matters’ Annual Report!
To provide independent, accessible, and evidence-based information:
• To improve the diagnosis and treatment of sex hormone-related ill health
• To help people improve and take control of their health & wellbeing
• To save the NHS unnecessary time and expense
• To debunk myths that only serve to marginalise people who menstruate
- We have increased our symptom management page traffic from an average of 100 up to 600 page views per month (and this trend is continuing; in March 2018, our symptom pages attracted over 1200 views).
- Our Top 10 symptom management pages: restlessness, chronic fatigue syndrome, abnormal bleeding, fuzzy-brain, all-symptoms, depression, asthma, diarrhoea, bladder issues, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- We have increased our blog traffic from an average of 200 up to 900 page views per month (and this trend is continuing; in March 2018, our blogs attracted over 1100 views).
- Top 10 blogs: asthma, depression-anxiety, top menstrual products, symptom tracking, enviromenstrual-matters, hormone balancing diet, irritable-not-irrational, managing-symptoms, medical taboo, breaking barriers in sex and menstruation education
- As a result of speaking at the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research biannual conference in Atlanta, Georgia (June 2017), our Director was asked to contribute a chapter to an upcoming publication (due out in 2019), the Palgrave/ MacMillan Handbook of Critical Menstruation Studies. Her research on ‘PMS and the myth of the irrational female’ is therefore likely to inform the work of numerous students in years to come!
