Have Heavy Periods? Take the Quiz

Do you know the facts about heavy periods and Natazia®? Take our true/false quiz to find out. Talk to your healthcare provider to determine if your bleeding is heavier than normal.

Question 1

Many women believe heavy periods are “normal” and do not seek treatment.

This is True. Although common, heavy periods should not be considered normal. Many women do not realize that they can get help, and some are too embarrassed to talk about it. Some women have always had heavy periods, so they feel this is just what their periods are supposed to be like. Talking openly about your heavy periods with your doctor or even a nurse during your office visit helps them better understand what you’re going through, and can lead to treatment options that can help.
Question 2

Natazia is the only birth control pill that is also FDA-approved to treat heavy monthly periods.

This is True. Natazia is the only birth control pill approved by the FDA to help lighten heavy monthly periods not caused by another condition of the uterus, such as fibroids or polyps. For women who choose the Pill for birth control, Natazia could be a treatment option for those experiencing heavy periods.
Question 3

Do you regularly soak through pads or tampons, and sometimes wake up in the middle of the night to change them?

This is True. While it’s important to talk to your healthcare provider about your heavy periods to ensure it’s not something more serious, there may be treatment options that can help.
Question 4

Restricting daily activities due to heavy bleeding is something that all women have to deal with.

This is False. If your life is significantly impacted by your heavy periods, it’s time to talk to your healthcare provider. Restricting daily activities due to fear of “leaking” or bleeding through clothing isn’t normal. It may be time to see what treatment options are available that could be right for you.
