Can A Person With Von Willebrand Disease Get A Tattoo
TATTOOS: Von willebrand disease (VWD) is a bleeding disorder. It affects your blood's ability to clot. If your blood doesn't clot, you can have heavy, hard-to-stop bleeding after an injury. I believe it might be dangerous to stop any of the bleeding that might occur during the tattooing pricess. I hope you are not disappointed.
Tattoos on your breasts, or elsewhere, will not have any effect on your pregnancy or on breastfeeding your new baby. It may not be a good idea to get a new tattoo during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, because of the small risk of infection from the small breaks in the skin that ...Read more
Yes: Most people with von Willebrand's don't know they have it. If you have a severe form and are followed regularly by a hematologist, ask him/her first. Otherewise, go ahead. Be sure it's something you really and truly want. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer
It is possible, but: Depending on the severity of your disease, it is possible, but only in consultation with your hematologist. The severity of VWD is quite variable from patient to patient. If you really wanted to get a tattoo, you could pre-treat yourself with the appropriate medicine as if you were having an elective surgery, but you would have to pay for it out of pocket (i doubt insurance would cover it).See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Like everything else involving body art, it's at your own risk. Your physician might be your best guide here. If you take a factor before other procedures, this would perhaps be a good time. Start with something small. I like well-chosen body art and if this is something you've really wanted for some time, I hope you're able to get it.
Yes: Yes but there is a risk of excess bleeding.
Yes: About 1% of humankind has at least mild vWF. If you're presently being managed on medication by a hematologist, get his/her thoughts. If it's not been a huge problem for you, and your physician has released you, then go ahead. VWF involves the blood itself and its platelets, while the tattoo involves the deep skin.
It is possible for..: A person with a bleeding disorder like vwf def to get a tattoo, but precautions are warranted. If you normally utilize DDAVP (desmopressin) or similar adjunctive to address bleeding, it's advisable to administer doses the day of and following the tattoo to mitigate/prevent bleeding. Using a tattoo artist with designated training in infection control is essential. Not my cup of tea, but others have done it.
Yes: Depending on the severity of the disorder will dictate if it is safe to proceed. How your coagulation profile responds to administration of dictates the effectiveness of treatment and safety of surgery. The costs of preventative treatment is very highland has risks as well, asking the decision to proceed with elective, cosmetic surgery more complex!See 4 more doctor answers

Do you know of any person that has von willebrand disease and factor five disorder? My dr tells me I am unique. And I can't be treated for either one.
Why?: I agree that there are probably others out there with the same combination of problems. And this should not preclude any necessary therapy. If you have bleeding due to your vwd, treatment can be provided without greatly increasing your risk for developing a clot. Conversely, many patients with fv leiden (what I think you mean) don't need to take blood thinners, so VWD shouldn't be a problem.See 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: "risky" is hard to define. Because menstrual bleeding is one of the more common problems women with VWD have, it is considered "riskier" for women than men. It is very possible to manage menstrual bleeding, as well as bleeding with childbirth very effectively, however. Once that happens, VWD is no riskier for women than it is for men.
Yes: Vwd is an inherited condition. It affects both males and females. If one parent has the most common type, type 1, then each child has a 50% chance of inheriting the disease.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Most blood centers say no, mostly because the risk for you donating (venipuncture) is not trivial and impossible for the blood center to assess at the time of donation. You could always donate your time as a volunteer at a blood drive, however!
Possibly: With vwb, you may be at extra bleeding risk. It depends on the platelet count and the function of your blood clotting. So often your doctors will take special precautions. But anything can happen in surgery and with childbirth so being prepared is the most important thing. That being said, in most patients everything is fine.See 1 more doctor answer
Multiple types: There are multiple types of this disease. It can also be acquired. See these sites for more info. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/von-willebrand-disease/basics/definition/con-20030195 http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/206996-overview
What happens if my girlfriend has von willebrand disease and I don't what's the chances of our children getting it?
50% in most cases: An overwhelming majority of von Willebrand Disease (VWD) is dominant, meaning that if you carry one gene, you have VWD. Supposing that your girl friend has one VWD on one chromosone, and the other is normal, the chance of her passing that VWD gene to your offspring would be 50%. Most patients with VWD have type 1 disease which is fully compatible with normal life span.
