March is Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month

Bleeding disorders are a group of disorders resulting in the inability to form a proper
blood clot.

Signs and symptoms of a bleeding disorder:

  • Easy bruising
  • Bleeding gums
  • Heavy bleeding from small cuts or dental work
  • Unexplained nosebleeds
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Bleeding into joints
  • Excessive bleeding following surgery

Treatment for bleeding disorders varies, depending on the condition and its severity. If any of the symptoms occur, a doctor should be visited immediately. He/she will be able to diagnose a bleeding disorder by assessing the symptoms, medical history, and blood test results.
