This leads to more bleeding than usual.</p><p>Bleeding in hemophilia is usually related to injuries. But it can also occur spontaneously, without any obvious cause. This is especially the case in people who have severe hemophilia. The pattern of bleeding is often related to the age of the person and the activities that they do.</p> <figure class="asset-c-80"><img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/Hemophilia_joint_bleed_MED_ILL_EN.jpg" alt="" /></figure> <p>In babies, there may be bleeding at the time of birth.

Bleeding can also occur inside the body (internal bleeds). In hemophilia, internal bleeds are more common, especially bleeding into joints or muscles. Sometimes you can sense when you start to bleed. You may:</p><ul><li>get a tingling feeling in a joint</li><li>feel warmth and see swelling or redness in the area. This is because bleeding causes the joint to become inflamed.<br></li></ul> <figure class="asset-c-80"> <span class="asset-image-title">Soft tissue bleeds in hemophilia</span> <img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/Hemophilia_muscle_bleed_MED_ILL_EN.jpg" alt="" /> </figure>
