Imagine having all the symptoms, and even the diagnosis of hemophilia, but you constantly hear that it’s impossible for you to have the condition. You undergo surgery without having factor available, suffer from bleeds and are placed in life-threatening situations, despite the fact that your factor levels have consistently shown that you have hemophilia. While this sounds like an outrageous scenario, most women with hemophilia have lived this exact same story. On our “Women with Bleeding Disorders” episode of the Ask the Expert Podcast, we dive into the challenges faced by women living with bleeding disorders and their struggle to receive a proper diagnosis and treatment, with our guest expert Tammy Davenport.
