More about Thrombophilia
Thrombophilia is a condition where the blood has an increased tendency to form clots. This clotting is called thrombosis. There are many different causes, some of which are hereditary. Some people with thrombophilia have no problems, whereas others may need to take medication to prevent or treat clots.
