The businesswoman revealed that she felt lucky initially when she didn’t have issues with her periods. However, she was diagnosed with perimenopause suddenly, and she experienced heavy menstrual bleeding, even during a few schedules of shooting the show. In her words:

“In my case, I had never faced any issues during my periods so I used to consider myself lucky. But when perimenopause happens, people think oh this is just for teenagers or younger women. When my perimenopause began, one of the biggest symptoms was heavy menstrual bleeding. Even during Shark Tank’s shoot I faced those issues.”

“I became so anaemic that my haemoglobin went to 8 and we have an injectable that we take through IV, Ferric carboxymaltose. I had to take the injection for five months, it is a 45-minutes process. That is how I am sitting here today. There can be such serious issues in women’s productivity.”
