      My daughter has a bleeding issue they have not been able to diagnose. She had horrific periods. She wanted to go on birth control and talked with our pediatric HTC that has a girls clinic. She chose the birth control and has not had a period in over a year – it has been a relief to her. Ironically, she no longer even remembers how bad her bleeding was, which is a good thing.

      Birth Control pills are often first line medication for heavy periods in girls with hemophilia.  IUDs (intrauterine devices) are another option.  Oral hormones often will raise the factor VIII levels in women with hemophilia, which in turn, decreases the length and heaviness of periods.  But, pills and IUDs are not for everyone. What have you done about your period? Do you take oral birth control, or have an IUD? What is your story?
