Hemophilia and Inherited Bleeding Disorders

Vonwillebrands

01/26/2011

Question:

Okay, so I have Vonwillebrands Type 2 and I was just curious as to if i was going to lose my viginity, would I be at risk to excessively bleed when he `pops my cherry`? Because I really have been thinking about it and I want to make sure that I won`t have to go to the hospital just because I couldnt stop bleeding when my hymen broke.

Answer:

Of course there is a potential for some bleeding at the time the hymen is broken.  However, I am not aware of any one with vonWillebrand's needing treatment for it.
