On Thursday 7 September the Government launched the Women’s Reproductive Health Survey.
Delivering on a key commitment in the Women’s Health Strategy, the Women’s Reproductive Health Survey is seeking views from women and those assigned female at birth, living across England on issues including periods, contraception, fertility, pregnancy and the menopause.
Findings from the survey will be used to better understand female reproductive health experiences over time. The vital information gathered will inform current and future government decision-making and health policy.
The questions being asked include:
how much pain is experienced during periods;
how they prefer to access contraceptive services; and
how satisfied they were with any support they received for menopausal symptoms.
The survey is being delivered by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and is funded by the Department of Health and Social Care open to all woman and those assigned female at birth in England, aged 16-55 years and will run for six weeks from Thursday 7 September 2023.
