The most common symptom you might have is heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB). This is usually defined as a week or more of heavy bleeding, often with large blood clots.

Other symptoms can include:

  • Anemia
  • Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts
  • Increased miscarriages early in pregnancy
  • Post-partum hemorrhaging
  • Post-surgical bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Painful or swollen joints
  • Painful periods
  • Bruising easily
  • Bleeding gums
  • Bloody noses

Testing for a bleeding disorder is a simple blood draw. You and your doctor will need to coordinate the testing with your menstrual cycle. Many drugs can affect the results. Be sure to tell your doctor about any drugs or supplements you’re taking.

If the test shows you have a bleeding disorder, your medical team can create a treatment plan that works for you.
