Our expert says:
Firstly on the von Willebrand's --- its quite common, and often not urgently serious, though it does include an increased tendency to bleeding ( eg heavier periods ) and often needs no treatment at all. There are several varieties. Your doc should have told you, and should still tell you whether he considers this serious and urgent, as otherwise it's likely that you can postpone this set of tests till January or whenever, without significant risk.
I understand that it's more the attitude you feel your husband has shown than the blood tests themselves, that is bothering you. Its not a bad thing that a guy wants to save some money each month, but I understand that its the impression of being uncaring that bothers you.
Marriage counselling would indeed be a good idea, and need not take a great deal of time --- the pair of you probably already spend significantly more time arguing, than you could be spending in this more productive and useful activity
