Am I Number 5?

1 in 5 women suffer with heavy periods (menorrhagia). Many women aren’t aware that it is a medical condition. They have put up with it for years or have given up trying to get treatment as nothing has helped and they’re unaware of the available treatment options.
Hologic has got together with Endometriosis UK and Wellbeing of Women to raise awareness that heavy periods are a medical condition that do not have to be ‘put up with’ and can be effectively treated.

Supported charities

Endometriosis UK

Endometriosis devastates the lives of women and their families. Endometriosis UK helps them take back control. One in ten women endure unrelenting pain that affects every aspect of their lives each day. That’s over 1.5 million women who desperately need support and information to help them understand this chronic condition. They provide vital support services, reliable information and a community for those affected by endometriosis. Endometriosis UK is a very small organisation, striving for big results.

https://www.endometriosis-uk.org/
Wellbeing of Women

Wellbeing of Women find cures, treatments and preventions to improve and save the lives of women and their babies. Affiliated to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, it’s the only charity funding research across the breadth of reproductive health and childbirth. Shockingly only 2.48% of all research is devoted to this vastly overlooked area. Most of routine treatments taken for granted in health care came about thanks to work Wellbeing has funded including: the importance of taking folic acid in pregnancy, the use of ultrasound in pregnancy and using lasers to treat cervical cancer.

#aminumber5 challenge nails! I’d like it if all my friends could share their #aminumber5 nails too!

After a years maternity I am delighted to be back working to help build awareness for women to seek treatment who are suffering with heavy menstrual bleeding. It can be a real taboo for women to talk about this condition when there are many minimally invasive treatment options available. Please share to spread the word and help women improve their quality of life!! #aminumber5 #novasure #myosure

I'm loving my mermaid green nail. It's different to anything I'd normally have but its having the right effect as people keep asking me why just one nail is green! 🐬🐬🐬 And the answers simple I'm one of the 1 in 5 women who suffer with heavy periods. I've been this woman for 10 years but things are changing as I'm now awaiting an op to help sort things out. 🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼 #aminumber5? @britmums #ad Every pic shared on FB or insta sees £1 donated to women's health charities

#AmINumber5 - Broadcaster & successful blogger, Katy Hill @katyhilltv (& Dr Martin Godfrey - not in picture) talks about an awareness campaign to help women recognise and understand heavy periods as a common condition which can be treated, empowering them to have informed conversation with their GP, if appropriate, and indeed to be confident in wearing white again. @wearwhiteagain The campaign aims to prompt thought and discussion amongst women... around wheather they are one on five affected. . .

#BML17 - you've been incredible! Thank you to the lovely people at @britmums for such a memorable event. So many giggles, lessons learned and inspirational people met. 😍 This legend: @colleyswobbles has made my weekend, and has tolerated my 6am giddiness like a diamond. Although I suspect that she might be slightly relieved that my croaky voice of yesterday has now completely given up on me. Our journey home back up t'north should be so much more peaceful! 🙊 Mrs Wobbles - you're an absolute Gem. 💕

Could I LOOK more EXCITED?! No my friend - I could not! #TBT to my WIN at @britmums Live - Brilliance in Blogging Awards! When Kaya was born we moved to LA for 3 years so I could enjoy life away from the limelight & Ienjoy her. We returned to have Akira and I set up my blog when I found the parenting journey a bit lonely. I figured if I was having a tough time, there must be more who were struggling & I wanted to encourage other women in the most incredible, life-changing, rewarding but, at times, challenging job on the planet. And I didn’t hold back with the oversharing. SUPER excited to be heading back to #BritmumsLive17 on Saturday as a speaker. Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the session - please be sure to come and say hi if you’re there! I'll be there with hugs & cheerleading - ALWAYS! 💕
