Breaking the period taboo: one in five women suffer from severe pain

A representative survey by Groupe Mutuel shows that approximately one in five Swiss women suffer from severe menstrual pain and that more than half of those surveyed take painkillers to help them cope. In addition, many women feel restricted in their daily lives during their periods. In particular, they may give up sports and sexual intercourse and choose to wear dark-coloured clothes.
