Bleeding and clotting disorders are conditions that affect the way your blood forms clots. Normally, blood platelet cells stick together to plug a broken blood vessel. Proteins hold the platelets together as the blood vessel heals.
If you have a bleeding disorder, your blood may not clot because of low or abnormal platelets or clotting proteins. Even small injuries may result in excessive bleeding if you have a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia or Von Willebrand disease (both conditions affect the way your blood clots).
If you have a clotting disorder, your blood clots too easily. You may form clots even when you aren’t injured. These clots can be dangerous if they travel to your lungs, legs, or brain.
