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.

Fortunately I've been good. No bruising at all.

I’ve had bruising getting my blood pressure checked but have survived the mammograms just fine so far.
