Are there any severe hemophilia A women out there?

My six-year-old daughter has severe hemophilia A, which we all know is extremely rare. So I’m looking to connect with women who are in the same position. As my daughter gets older, she’s starting to ask more questions about her condition and I would love to be a bit more prepared to answer her questions, and share experience from those with first hand experience managing hemophilia as a woman.

Why no blood testing????

Since 1996 I have only had my blood timed to see how long it takes to stop bleeding. Should'nt the doctors have done other tests to find out about factors and other things?

Is illness Linked to Von willer brands?

My daughter has been poorly since the beginning. She's never been to the toilet properly, picked up every illness and never slept. It took a year for me to get taken seriously by the doctors which led to a hospital referral and to be told she was severely anemic.
