    Hello everyone!
    I am new to scuba and just got my certification last week and have gone on one solo dive (with my buddy of course) so far. Just wondering if there are any other divers with hemophilia with any information to help with my future dives. Before every dive I get an injection just in case of minuscule bleeding in my sinuses or in the event of something worse. My buddy has known me for a while and can help me with medicine and emergencies up until the point of putting a needle in my arm. Besides carrying first aid and medicine, trying my best to not get injured, having a buddy who is aware of my condition and my prophylactic injections is there any more advice from other individuals with hemophilia, or perhaps those who have known and dove with someone who has hemophilia. Thanks for your time!
