If you have a hemorrhaging disorder, you should avoid contact sports and use protective gear for other activity that may cause injury. Also, some medications should be avoided. Avoid medications containing naproxen, salicylates, or ibuprofen. Blood-thinning medications should also be avoided.

Do African Americans need to worry about their blood pressure?
HealthyWomen answeredIt's important for everyone to check his or her blood pressure regularly and know his or her blood pressure numbers -- especially African Americans, who are at higher risk for developing high blood pressure. Further, they may develop high blood pressure at a younger age and find high blood pressure harder to control. In addition, African American adults have higher rates of early death from causes related to high blood pressure.
Taking steps now can prevent heart disease and stroke down the road -- for everyone.
How do hemorrhaging disorders affect children?
Because hemorrhaging disorders are inherited, children are affected by them. Since a young baby is not very mobile, it may be difficult to know that the child has a hemorrhaging disorder. However, as they age, children are prone to minor injuries that could lead to excessive bleeding. Children with hemorrhaging disorders will need even more protection from injury than the average child.
