Know the Facts

Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder which prevents blood from clotting properly.  This is an inherited disorder that can lead to spontaneous bleeding following surgery or injury.  Blood naturally contains proteins called ‘clotting factors’ that help stop bleeding.  People living with hemophilia have low levels of either clotting factor VIII (8) or clotting factor IX (9).  The less amount of factor contained in your blood, the more likely it is that bleeding will occur.  Signs and symptoms of Hemophilia include: bleeding of the mouth and gums, blood in urine or stool, frequent and uncontrollable nosebleeds, as well as bruising and hematomas on the skin.  Hemophilia can be treated with medications, which replace the missing blood clotting factor.
