Girls Only (GO) Clinic
The Girls Only (GO) Clinic offered by the Indiana Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center, Inc. (Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center Inc.) is committed to providing expert care for adolescent females 11-18 years of age with bleeding or clotting disorders. The clinic focuses on individuals with either heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) or those at increased risk of developing blood clots requiring safe hormonal therapy. HMB may be a symptom of an underlying bleeding disorder, hormonal dysfunction, and/or a gynecological issue. A personal or family history of blood clots may preclude the use of certain kinds of hormonal suppressive therapy due to safety concerns. These difficult decisions require the expertise of a hematologist and adolescent medicine physician, with an in-depth evaluation and discussion. The GO Clinic brings together these experts to provide comprehensive, coordinated care in one appointment at the Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center Inc., thus maximizing patient convenience and accelerating diagnosis. The GO Clinic is the only specialty clinic of its kind in the state of Indiana.
