What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

Bleeding disorders can range from mild to severe. Mild disorders may not even be noticed. Symptoms of mild clotting problems can include:

  • bruising easily
  • heavy menstrual periods
  • occasional nosebleeds
  • problems with unexpected bleeding after surgery
  • Severe bleeding disorders usually do not occur before birth but can cause problems at birth. These problems can include:

  • bleeding into joints with minimum trauma
  • bruising easily
  • other life-threatening bleeding
  • spontaneous internal bleeding
  • Some clotting problems cause immediate bleeding, while others result in bleeding several days after trauma or surgery.
