Because bleeding and clotting disorders can be related to a woman's reproductive system and even sometimes cause reproductive problems, so the CDC and The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) are trying to educate women about these disorders and expand the reach of doctors who treat blood and clotting disorders. Bleeding and clotting disorders can pose problems such as heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), bleeding and clotting complications of pregnancy and recurrent fetal loss. If you have a disorder related to bleeding or clotting, it could very well affect your ability to have a healthy pregnancy and birth. With this in mind, it's smart to be aware of the signs of a bleeding or clotting disorder. The CDC notes that signs include the following:
- Unusually hard-to-control bleeding after minor injury, childbirth, or surgery.
- Excessive bleeding from the gums after flossing, brushing, or having a tooth removed.
- Frequent or long nosebleeds.
- Easy bruising.
- Adolescent or adult women with severe heavy bleeding during their period - bleeding that cannot be explained by something else.
- Women who are about to have hysterectomies for excessive menstrual bleeding.
