7-2-1 rule

In honour of International Women’s Day 2024, observed on March 8th, the EHC Women and Bleeding Disorders Committee is pleased to present its 7-2-1 rule infographic.

Heavy menstrual bleeding is one of the primary symptoms of women affected by rare bleeding disorders and it can have a severe impact on daily quality of life. However, many women are still unaware of how heavy their periods are and whether they should seek medical help. This meticulously crafted graphic illustrates the 7-2-1 rule, a vital guideline for recognising signs of heavy periods.

Below is the original English version and other languages in which the flyer has already been translated. Furthermore, we offer a customisable version of the infographic, facilitating dissemination among our esteemed EHC members for localisation in various languages. We hope that this resource will serve as a valuable tool not only within our community but also among clinicians and other healthcare professionals dedicated to the well-being of women and girls affected by bleeding disorders.

We strongly encourage members of our community to use these infographics freely and tailor them to their country’s needs, for instance, by adding the contact details of their National Member Organisation (NMO) or women’s group.

The EHC Women and Bleeding Disorders Committee is steadfast in its belief that such initiatives play a pivotal role in fostering awareness and understanding within our community. By leveraging this tool, we endeavour to advocate for early recognition, timely and accurate diagnosis, and improved treatment and care for women and girls impacted by these conditions.

Let us unite on March 8th, amplifying our efforts to raise awareness and advocate for enhanced support systems. Together, let us empower women and girls on the occasion of Women’s Day!
