Dr. Clay Cohen provides his clinical expertise in bleeding disorders to the Young Women with Bleeding Disorders Clinic. Heavy menstrual bleeding may be caused by an underlying bleeding disorder in up to 30% of young women with excessive menstrual bleeding.

If a bleeding disorder diagnosis is made, he, alongside his colleagues, will develop an individual patient care plan for the best individual outcome.
