This is an interesting problem to have noted, and there could be several reasons for this. First, it is important to ask your family if any of your relatives have had a similar problem. If so, try to find out what medical condition they had, and how it was treated. Also, you will want to address this issue with your primary care doctor
so that they can do some lab studies.
There are many common reasons for increased bleeding time. One of the most common is known as von Willenbrand's disease, which is a defect in the platelets and how they clump together. Platelets are very small particles in your blood that usually stick together when there is bleeding. Some other things that can make them not stick together include common medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, that make platelets not work as well. If you are taking any of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, they could play a role in this as well.
There are other, less common, conditions that can make you bleed more also. Please talk to your doctor to see which, if any, you have. It is important to know in case you need surgery
or have an injury
in the future.
