Symptoms of Frequent Nosebleeds

Slow to moderate bleeding from the inside of the nose is considered a typical nosebleed. If bleeding is severe or you have other symptoms, seek medical attention. Troublesome symptoms include:

  • Nosebleeds last longer than 30 minutes
  • Nosebleeds occur more than once a week
  • You feel weak or faint from loss of blood
  • You’re having trouble breathing
  • You have a head injury

If frequent nosebleeds are accompanied by easy bruising, heavy menstrual bleeding and prolonged bleeding after an injury or dental work, talk to your physician. It could be related to a mild form of Type 1 von Willebrand disease, a common blood clotting disorder.
