Many organizations and resources exist to assist women who are faced with the unique challenges that come to those managing a bleeding or clotting disorder. These conditions require special care and attention, and these resources can be helpful. Please note that these resources are not a part of the HTC, but external organizations that provide care, information, education, opportunities and options for women with bleeding and clotting disorders. Always refer with your physician about particular medical advice that you may find online.

Additional Resources for Women
Searching the internet for information about a condition can be filled with frightening and misleading information. Although we recommend you always consult your physician for medical advice, there are some resources online that can provide helpful and accurate information to women living with bleeding and clotting disorders. The National Library of Medicine provides very easy to navigate site about many health topics, including bleeding disorders, at their MedlinePlus website. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute has very detailed information on Hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and other blood related conditions. Another great online resource for women with bleeding or clotting conditions is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
