When i get a cut, it bleeds alot!?
lately i have notcied that i am bleeding more than usual when i get a cut. ( i am a kultz so i am prone to getting them!) A few days ago i cute my finger while picking up my binder (i dont know how that happened). it was bleeding alot when it happened, and it practically bled through the bandage. i assumed it was just a deep cut. at the end of the day, it was STILL bleeding when i replaced the bandage. and now, i just got a cute on my leg while shaving and it bled alot too! why is this?

Yes, you need to see your doctor and have blood tests.
in the mean time avoid citrics,garlic, aspirine, advil, motrin, ibuprofen, aleve, vit E.

one hot mamma
i agree with valleyviolet and Kal H. when in doubt, it's best to see a doctor

not trying to scare you but yeah

I agree with all the answers. Have your doctor do a "bleeding time" its painless and helpful. My sons and I have what is called Von Wilbrands Disease. It is just a clotting time problem. Are your periods heavy? There is a binder like substance that surrounds the red blood cells,and the agent that causes clotting, Von Wilbrands is a disease of this agent. NOT deadly, but worth a close look, You have to be careful about aspirin and those type of things. Larger cuts need immediate attention. My son cut his arm, into the muscle and almost bled to death in the ER waiting room until I mentioned to the staff this problem. Alot of people have it, and it is not as bad as the other bleeding problem. Also,smaller cuts just seem to seep, legs are bad, the surface, or epidermis holds alot of capillaries....once they are cut, they need time to heal. Try keeping the area clean and dry, apply slight pressure and don't peek at it !
Ask mom to get you into the doctors for this test,also, anemia can do this. In the mean time, look up Von Wilbrands..it is amazing stuff..the name comes from a Czar in Russia who was first diagnosed with it..so, if you have it,you are, indeed Royalty.. !!!

If you take any of the following, they may be contributing to slower clotting times: aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oils, ginkgo. If this persists, see an MD.

I agree somewhat with the person who said this could be hemophilia - normally this affects males, but there is a similar disorder that mainly effects women called Von Wilhelm's (or something close to that) you should really tell a doctor so you can be tested for the disorder.

What Robin says is true. I also have VonWillebrands, and it is hereditary.

It is actually a deficiency in one of the clotting factors. I would have a hard time believing this is your issue if you say this problem has developed, rather than always having issues with excess bleeding.

You may have begun a medication or herbal remedy which prolongs clotting time. Check with your doctor on possibilities.

Again, I doubt that you have any true disease as it would not have suddenly developed. If you hold pressure on a wound for a longer period of time you may have decreased bleeding. It sounds as though you are putting band-aids on right away and expecting that to control the bleeding. Try pressure and elevation, and put the band-aid on when the bleeding has stopped.

Also, if you have bled enough into the band-aid, then take it off the following day, in any case the bleeding would resume as the band-aid had become part of the clot. You take the clot away and bleeding will resume.

Medications and some conditions can cause a person to bleed excessively. You definitely need to see a doctor to rule out possible unknown causes.

Hemophilia is a disorder of your blood-clotting system. Clotting is the process by which your blood changes from a liquid to a solid state in order to stop bleeding.

There are several types of hemophilia. All types can cause prolonged bleeding. If you have hemophilia and you have a cut, you'll bleed for a longer time than you would if your blood clotted normally. Small cuts usually aren't much of a problem. The greater health concern is deep internal bleeding and bleeding into joints.

Hemophilia is a lifelong disease. But with proper treatment and self-care, most people with hemophilia can maintain an active, productive lifestyle.
