women with bleeding disorders

Hemophilia is a genetic disorder affecting the family. According to the Center for Disease Control, “As many as 1% of women in the United States may have a bleeding disorder.” At DrugCo Health, we believe that women should be considered for clinical diagnoses of blood disorders at the same rate as men.

Women with Hemophilia

Many women are not aware that the term “symptomatic carrier” can actually carry a clinical diagnosis of mild, moderate, or severe hemophilia. With an official diagnosis, your insurance company may cover therapies for your bleeding disorder. Our team can help you take the steps to understand and advocate for your bleeding disorder.
