Information for Teenagers

Being a teenager is an incredible journey filled with new friendships, exciting hobbies, sports adventures, and the exploration of future aspirations. It’s a time when the world is full of possibilities, waiting for you to explore and conquer.

But during this time of change and new beginnings, it’s important to acknowledge the unique challenge of managing a bleeding disorder. This is the phase where you start taking more control and responsibility for your health. It’s about understanding your condition, being proactive about treatment, and making informed choices.

At the Irish Haemophilia Society, we understand that being a teenager with a bleeding disorder comes with its own set of considerations. We’re here to help you navigate through this phase with resources, support, and a community that understands.

You can still embrace all the joys of teenage life while making sure you take care of yourself. Whether it’s finding ways to integrate treatment into your routine or making informed decisions about the sports and activities you engage in, we’re here to provide guidance.
