FY2021 Annual Report

Full report- FY2021 annual report


To provide independent, accessible, and evidence-based information:

  • To improve the diagnosis and treatment of menstrual cycle-related ill health
  • To help people manage their health & wellbeing
  • To save the NHS unnecessary time and expense
  • To bust myths that only serve to marginalise people who menstruate


Hooray! Website traffic is double what it was last year! The website reached over 160,000 people in the past 12 months. Considering the poor state of menstrual health education, I take heart in knowing that so many people are finding out how to improve their cyclical symptoms and/or bust those menstrual myths!
