Menstrual pain and heavy bleeding are common in young women, can be chronic and debilitating and have significant impacts on the quality of life. In other chronic conditions, such as cancer, research has shown that quality of life can be improved by addressing unmet needs of patients. Yet, for young women (13-19 years of age) with heavy menstrual bleeding and pain, their physical, psychological and social wellbeing needs have not been explored. The goal of this research is to identify areas of need so that interventions can be designed and delivered to improve the experience of these young women and their quality of life.
