Tips for Best Digital Use

Download the pages you need. Save them on your computer or in a storage cloud, complete digitally, save, and share with providers.

Tips for Best Printing Results

To print the logs, open them in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Click the Print button, go to File, Print, or press Control + P on your keyboard. In the print dialogue, under Page Sizing; Handling, select Fit. This should ensure that your log does not get cut off when you print. If you are using another PDF viewer, look for an option that seems similar. Complete pages after printing and share with providers.

Measure by Volume

The HFA team created new tracking logs that measure volume based on the universal knowledge that 80ml (2.7oz) of blood loss during a menstrual cycle is determined to be ‘heavy menstrual bleeding.’ After much research, we determined it might prove more useful for patients and providers to track volume loss. Our goal is to provide a more comprehensive tool for those who have bleeding disorders and the potential to menstruate to track one’s menstrual cycle, general bleeding, and other signs and symptoms as it relates to their bleeding disorder.
