Are There Any Severe Hemophilia A Women Out There?
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

I believe there is a hemophiliac organization in all states that can help with payments and other things

You are very welcome! I did have a natural birth but the pain was rough, they wouldn’t give me anything for the contractions. Also, for post birth, make sure they do a follow up on your levels. My… read more

Why No Blood Testing????
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

When I was diagnosed back in 1987, I had several bleed time tests done. Since then I have been told that they no longer do that type of test. I was not given a reason why.

Depends on the severity of the structure. A lot of MDs feel that no intervention is really needed

Isn’t pain relative to the person that feels it. Since I’ve grown up bleeding I don’t try to compare to a “normal” who hasn’t had regular bleeds. I only compare my pain to myself. So if you are… read more

I Am Wondering About Fatigue With Mild VWs.
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

My VW is mild, so I have not always given it the credit it deserves in causing complications in my life. But I was diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnia (non REM narcolepsy) several years ago. I found out a year and a half ago I was misdiagnosed and had iatrogenic hypersomnia caused by an antidepressant. I thought I was completely cured when I stopped taking that medication, and my improvement really is a miracle. But I have always been a little more fatigued than the average person. I always… read more
