Why Is It Important To Know If I Have A Bleeding Disorder?
Finding out that you have a bleeding disorder and getting the medical help you need can really improve your quality of life and reduce stress. Not getting treatment for a bleeding disorder can have serious consequences, such as severe anemia. Untreated bleeding disorders can cause dangerous bleeding after:
- Abortion and Termination of Pregnancy
- Dental work
- Any surgery, whether minor or major
All of these bleeding problems can be prevented or controlled with medicine. If you have symptoms of a bleeding disorder, talk to your doctor. If you know that you have a bleeding disorder, be sure to tell your doctor, nurse, midwife, surgeon and dentist.
