A Women’s Health Perspective


Women with MPNs face specific challenges, including the impact of their condition on fertility, pregnancy outcomes, and the interaction of treatments with female hormonal cycles. Addressing these concerns requires a holistic approach to care, one that encompasses not just the physical aspects of the disease but also its emotional and psychological dimensions.



From Pregnancy to Treatment Choices


For women with MPNs, pregnancy represents a journey that must be carefully planned and managed, necessitating collaboration between hematologists and obstetricians to ensure the health of both mother and baby. Our resources detail some articles for managing pregnancy, highlighting the importance of professional and individualized care plans. 


Additionally, making informed choices about contraception and miscarriage is crucial for women with MPNs. Our platform also explores treatment options tailored to women, acknowledging the need for approaches that respect their unique physiological and hormonal considerations.

Eva's narrative is among many that illuminate the path for women with MPNs, offering real-world insights into managing these conditions. Discover her full story now!


Our site is home to a range of testimonies from women who share their journeys, from diagnosis through to managing daily life, including pregnancy, treatment decisions, and beyond. These stories are a testament to the resilience of women living with MPNs and serve as a valuable resource for support and advice.


This International Women's Day, we recognize and honor the lives of women with MPNs, celebrating their journeys and the wisdom they share. Their experiences are crucial in shaping a more informed and supportive community for all women living with MPNs.
