Young Adults & Teenage Girls

For young adults and teenage girls there are many specific and relevant issues which may be of concern and for which they require information. The diagnosis of a bleeding disorder can greatly impact the emotional and physical quality of life for a teenage girl. Part of becoming independent in relation to your bleeding disorder is to understand the impact your diagnosis has on you and your life and to learn how to deal with that impact. How severely you are affected by your symptoms will generally determine how significantly your life may be affected by your bleeding disorder. Teenage girls need to get an understanding of treatment options.
