In brief: Maybe

There are a huge variety of clotting disorders, with the blood clotting too easily or not easily enough.
For the first, most important is to avoid sitting for a long time without moving your legs, as on long airplane flights. For the latter, choosing sports that are safe for your handicap. For both, you will need accurate diagnosis, education, and rx that only a specialist physician can offer.
