The Wellbeing of Women

The research was first conducted in 2017 and repeated in 2022. The current site is updated with the latest results.

”Having one of the largest portfolios out of all companies providing gynaecological products, Gedeon Richter has a special knowledge about women’s situation. With the present survey, we wanted to draw attention to the importance of taking women’s health seriously and also to the overall situation of women, including their social and mental wellbeing.”
“Caring for others, especially for their families is the most important driving force in a woman’s life. In many cases their devotion leads to the negligence of the quality of their own lives and health.”
“Reliable contraception is essential for a carefree sexual life and conscious family planning. This is probably why most women find contraception the most important women’s healthcare topic. Healthcare professionals are a key source to finding the proper solution that fits the individual woman’s lifestyle and special needs. This is especially true since awareness of some methods is low and many women are not familiar with all the additional benefits of certain solutions. The consultation with a healthcare professional is important in order to exclude any possible health risk, but there is still room for improvement in this regard, as many women said that they did not get detailed information from their healthcare professional, and even less took the time to read patient information leaflets.”
“Women pay less attention to menstruation problems above the age of 20 and a high proportion of women between age 25 to 50 experience related symptoms. It is clear that many women have become indifferent to the signals of their own body, accepting symptoms and inconveniences and even thinking that they are a normal part of menstruation and therefore of a woman’s life. Women should recognise these symptoms and consult with a healthcare professional as treatment can bring significant improvement in their quality of life. In cases of the most common benign tumour of the female genital tract, medicinal solution is also accessible, which is much often preferred by women over surgical intervention.”
“Fear of infertility is a huge emotional burden for the affected women. If the lighter methods of helping conceiving like ovulation detection do not achieve the desired effect, within a reasonable period of time, consultation with a specialist should not be delayed, because in many cases medical methods can provide simple and effective solutions.”
”Not only do symptoms negatively affect women’s quality of life, there are also serious health risks associated with the menopause. In many cases these can be eliminated with proper treatment, like hormone replacement therapy.”
