=Hemophilia, or Bleeders' Disease= 

 

Hemophilia is a peculiar disease, consisting in frequent and often 

uncontrollable hemorrhages. The least cut or the pulling of a tooth 

may cause a severe or even dangerous hemorrhage. The slightest blow, 

squeeze or hurt will cause _ecchymoses_, or discolorations of the 

skin. The peculiarity of this hereditary disease is, that it attacks 

almost exclusively the males, but is transmitted almost exclusively 

through the female members. For instance, Miss A., herself _not_ a 

bleeder, comes from a bleeder-family. She marries and has three boys 

and three girls; the three boys will be bleeders, the three girls will 

not; the three boys marry and have children; their children will 

_not_ be bleeders; the three girls marry, and _their male_ children 

will be bleeders. 

 

What is the lesson? The lesson is, that boys who are bleeders may 

marry, because they will most likely _not_ transmit the disease; but 

girls who come from a hemophilic family, irrespective of whether they 

themselves are hemophilics or not, must not marry, because most likely 

they _will_ transmit the disease. 

 

 

=Anemia= 

 

Anemia is a poor condition of the blood. The blood may contain an 

insufficient number of red blood cells or an insufficient percentage 

of the coloring matter of the blood, that is, hemoglobin. A special 

kind of anemia affecting young girls is called chlorosis. 

 

Anemia and chlorosis cannot be considered contra-indications to 

marriage, because they are usually amenable to treatment. In fact, 

some cases of anemia and chlorosis are due to the lack of normal 

sexual relations, and the subjects get well very soon after marriage. 

But it is best and safest to subject anemic patients to a course of 

treatment and to improve their condition before they marry. 

 

 

=Epilepsy= 

 

While epilepsy--known commonly as fits or falling sickness--is not as 

hereditary as it was one time thought to be, its hereditary character 

being ascertainable in only about 5 per cent. of cases, nevertheless, 

it is a decidedly dysgenic agent, and marriage with an epileptic is 

distinctly advised against. Where both parents are epileptics, the 

children are almost sure to be epileptic, and such a marriage should 

be prohibited by law. Under no circumstances should parents who are 

both epileptic bring children into the world. It should be the duty of 

the State to instruct them in methods of preventing conception. 

 

 

=Hysteria= 

 

Hysteria is a disease the chief characteristics of which are a _lack 

of control_ over one's emotions and acts, the _imitation_ of the 

symptoms of various diseases, and an _exaggerated_ self-consciousness. 

The patient may have extreme pain in the region of the head, ovaries, 

spine; in some parts of the skin there is extreme hypersensitiveness
