Bleeding disorder is a set of disorders, or disease which normally affect the process of clotting of our blood. This bleeding can be in many cases like during an accident, trauma condition, surgery, injury or a menstrual cycle. These bleeding disorders are not only associated with bloods leaving out from our body, rather it can also be an internal bleeding beneath our skin or brain. These may be hemophilia A and B or Willebrand?s disease for example. Sometimes this disease is also termed as royal disease.
