In brief: Blood tests
Common bleeding disorders can be diagnosed with a panel of blood tests checking platelets, prothrombin time, and partial thromboplastin time.
There are also genetic problems, like hemophilia which cause a deficiency of certain clotting factors. If you have a bleeding tendency in your family, get checked.
