Not that I'm looking to add anything else to my list of complaints...but are there any other symptoms of this problem other than free bleeding (periods included), bruising, anemia (one would assume fatigue is worse) and the like?  I haven't been tested and am up for some pretty extensive dental surgery for the first time on Humira.  Had a bleeding episode from periods from July 1 to Aug 21 this year, however, I'm also perimenopausal.  OBGyN says I have a benign cyst that she thinks is contributing to the bleeding and is on the bandwagon for none estrogen based therapy or surgery. GI says it would be next to impossible to do surgery.  Do those of you with the factor 8  think I am missing anything I should be paying attention too?  Also already do B12 injections once a month due to the resect so I'm wondering if that might be abating any anemia.  Never had any free bleeding issues up until this year after starting the humira. 
Dx'd Jan'06, 1st Resection 7/06, Predinsone, Humira, Imuran, B12 injections, Nexium. Secondary conditions: Psorasis, Acne, Fatigue, Joint Pain, Lactose Intolerant, gallstones, fibroid cysts, peri-menopausal.
