My name is Gabby, I'm 17 years old. I was diagnosed with vwd 5 years ago.I've struggled tremendously with this disease. I get infusions twice a week and occasional blood transfusions. I've been on my menstrual period since October of 2015. They have not found anything that has stopped my bleeding. I've tried Lysteda, Stimate, Humate-P and multiple other coagulants. Since I get infusions so often my family doctor suggested I get a surgically implanted port or a picc line. My hematologist thinks I'm too unstable. I bruise like a peach and my joints are constantly in pain. I have no idea what else I can do.
