In this short video, Luis Melgar, a young man with a bleeding disorder, discusses some common questions regarding relationships, intimacy, and sexuality with WFH psychosocial and musculoskeletal experts Frederica Cassis and Greig Blamey. Covering topics such as dating, kissing, disclosing a bleeding disorder, sexual health, and marriage and having children, their casual conversation may answer questions that you have also wondered about. You can also propose your own questions (anonymously) for a potential future video, in the form below.

If you have any comments or other questions about intimacy or sexuality and bleeding disorders, please write them in this anonymous form. We would love to hear from you!

Remember, you can always talk to a member of your comprehensive care team that you feel comfortable with.
