My husband has severe nose bleeds, they last over an hour sometimes. How do I get them to stop? Is this serious?

Dear Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER.

Has he seen a doctor about these severe nose bleeds? He should if he hasn't. This is what WebMD says about stopping a nose bleed.

*To stop a nosebleed:
Sit up straight.
Lean your head forward. Tilting your head back will only cause you to swallow the blood.
Pinch the nostrils together with your thumb and index finger for 10 minutes. Have someone time you to make sure you do not release the nostrils any earlier.
Spit out any blood in your mouth. Swallowing it may make you vomit.*

Below is a link to more information. Keep us updated.
