Hemophilia usually occurs in males, but it is a deadly disease involving blood clotting. This disease is neither contagious nor infectious. Instead it is genetically transmitted from generation to generation. When hemophiliac is cut, they need a blood clot to stop the blood flow from flowing too much. To form a blood clot, a person depends on series of proteins called factors. When Hemophilia occurs, these “factors” seem to be missing or not working properly.

Hemophilia, of course affects the person greatly because it causes bleeding so easily without stopping easily. Surface bleeds, are usually easier to stop; even for people with the disease. Internal bleeding, which is bleeding into joints or muscles, can be difficult to stop. It is possible for a clot to form often only after the person takes a medication called “clotting factor.”
