Share your thoughts about your phlebotomy experiences with your healthcare provider

Phlebotomies can be an effective intervention to help manage HCT levels. If procedures are becoming inconvenient for you or you are experiencing any side effects, you may want to discuss alternate care management options with your healthcare provider.

You may want to discuss your management plan with your healthcare provider if there has been an increase or a decrease in phlebotomies.

The following questions may help you discuss your phlebotomies with your healthcare provider:

  • Why are phlebotomies a part of my PV treatment plan?
  • How often will I need a phlebotomy to maintain my target blood count levels?
  • What does it mean if I need more blood drawn during a phlebotomy visit?
  • What might needing more frequent or regular phlebotomies tell me about the status of my PV and my management options?
