Women's Life Stage 2 | Career. Family. Fun.

Between the ages of 25 and 35 many women are making important decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. You may be focussed on pursuing your career, or you may be thinking about starting a family. You may want both.

Whatever you want, the pain and anxiety of erratic or problem periods can get in the way. As Women’s Health Expert, Dr Annie Evans explains, it is a demanding time and it is only natural that women want to get the most out of their bodies.

Areas to consider at this stage include:


  • Fertility/subfertility
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB)
  • Fibroids
  • Endometrial polyps
  • Breast cancer
  • Other cancers
