Women Bleed Too


1% of women have a bleeding disorder, and many don’t know they have it.
1 in 5 women experience heavy menstrual bleeding and among those 1 in 4 have a bleeding disorder.

The focus of this program is early, accurate diagnosis for women. Women with bleeding disorders have been historically underdiagnosed and undertreated. Their bleeding disorder symptoms are often not recognized as being abnormal. As a result, women with bleeding symptoms can experience a delay in diagnosis.

Having a correct and timely diagnosis is critical in ensuring the appropriate medical care for women with bleeding disorders. It is also important that women with a bleeding disorder diagnosis have the proper access to care, as this access can positively impact their quality of life.
