Managing menstruation, menopause and gynaecological health at work
This brief survey forms the basis of a pilot study on how academics manage their bodies in the workplace, specifically those academics who manage menstruation, menopause and gynaecological health problems at work. The survey is confidential and anonymous, although participants may provide contact details if they would be willing to participate in an interview for a larger study. The survey findings will be used to inform a larger research grant application, and research outputs such as conference presentations, journal papers and social media (blogs). Please answer as many questions as possible.

The study has received ethical approval from Heriot Watt University. If you have any questions or comments please direct them to Kate Sang at k.sang@hw.ac.uk
