  • : Online

This free online learning module provides 15 clinical questions and immediate answers about an original peer-reviewed article written for GPs.

Relevance to General Practice

Heavy menstrual bleeding that interferes with a woman’s physical, emotional, social and material quality of life is a common problem, affecting 25% of women of reproductive age. Effective pharmaceutical therapy and less invasive procedures than hysterectomy are now available to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. However, there is a high degree of variation in use of treatments for heavy menstrual bleeding around Australia, suggesting that therapeutic alternatives to hysterectomy are not used consistently. This article offers guidance to GPs consistent with the 2017 Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Clinical Care Standard. Two leading women’s health experts advise on assessment and management of women with heavy menstrual bleeding in general practice, including the range of treatment options available, their suitability in individual circumstances, and when to refer women to a specialist.
