In brief: Yes

Symptoms of VWD may include increased bruising.
Other types of bleeding typically seen include nose bleeds, prolonged menstrual periods, prolonged bleeding after surgery or injury, mucous membrane bleeding. Vwd usually does not present with spontaneous joint bleeding / deep tissue bleeding as is seen in the hemophilias.
