The effects of blood loss depend on a person's general state of health(anaemia), the amount of blood lost, and how quickly it was lost.
How long blood is not stopping?
Does it happen earlier that blood doesnot stop for long?
Check if you have haemophilia.
Go to doctor he will do tests BT ,CT and check for signs of blood loss.
