Have Any Women With Mild Hemophilia A (or "symptomatic Carrier") Had Issues With Bruising With Mammogram?

Have Any Women With Mild Hemophilia A (or "symptomatic Carrier") Had Issues With Bruising With Mammogram?

I am scheduled for diagnostic mammogram. I have factor VIII levels in the low 40% and tend to bruise easily. Worried about the mammogram causing significant bruising so am wondering about the experiences of others.

I'm glad you did okay. I have not had problems with bruising and mammograms... the newer machines seem a little more gentle....

Fortunately, I did ok! Some bruising and soreness but not bad. The technician that worked with me was very good.
