Menstrual Wellbeing Toolkit now live

Menstrual related problems affect a significant proportion of the 25 percent of the UK female population who are of reproductive age, from menarche to menopause; affecting their physical, psychological and social wellbeing. Managing ‘period problems’ is often delayed because of the associated stigma and myths, which leaves women unsupported and in some cases at risk of developing long-term consequences of untreated disease.

As part of the RCGP's Menstrual Wellbeing Spotlight project, funded by Endometriosis UK, a new Menstrual Wellbeing Toolkit has been launched to help general practitioners care for women with menstrual problems. 

Busy primary care clinicians need relevant, up to date and easy to use resources, so following the success of other Clinical Innovation and Research Centre (CIRC) clinical priority and spotlight projects, a Menstrual Wellbeing toolkit has been developed and published on the RCGP website. This ‘everything in one place’ toolkit includes:

  • Top tips on heavy menstrual bleeding, endometriosis and menopause management
  • Clinical guidelines for managing menstrual dysfunction
  • Patient and carer information support
  • Useful resources including the RCGP women’s health CPD library and Essential Knowledge Updates.
  • Commissioning recommendation

As the project progresses, further resources will be added, including podcasts and an eLearning module. Working closely with clinical experts from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, members of the RCGP Patients and Carers Group and the voluntary sector ensures that all resources produced are evidence based and appropriate for the care women want and deserve.

The Menstrual Wellbeing Spotlight Project is led by Bradford based GP, Dr Ann Connolly, and runs until 31 March 2019.
