That's really not that much fish oil and aspirin for those kind of effects (especially if on any compounds)... do you rely mostly on protein shakes? Do you eat much beef? My point is, it COULD be as simple as low iron levels (which you won't get much in protein shakes or just the usual chicken/fish diet)... even the iron in multi's are either a) low in dose and/or b) low in bio-availability

I take 6 mg/day of coumadin and just about never bruise! Hell, my wife bruises with the least little thing. Sometimes I think its hereditary, but then youre saying that you didnt used to and now you are?

yeah.. i guess i might have had this a while.. when i had a partial rupture of my quad last year you would not believe the bruising.. the doc was even amazed and thought it had to be much worse than it was.. i was thinking like myosin said that iron might be the cause but i eat more than enough things rich in iron.. i take 1000mgs of vit c a day ect ect.. kinda at a lose.. but i do bleed easy.. ifi get cut at work i will bleed pretty good initially.. clot time is fast though.. it is almost like i am on blood thinner but i have decent clot time.. lol.. maybe it is my sissy irish skin..

Sounds like you might have a high hematocrit/hemoglobin. I used to bleed really bad like that too when mine was high but I would clot fast. I was a freak at the gym a few times when my scalp would bleed during squats!

Exactly what I was thinking. Whats your H/H. I'd lay money you're polycythemic.

Same thing with me.I got checked for the genetic disorder but came back clean.My numbers were on the high normal end.I think i was a point out of range.Iam on cypionate and eq all year round.Baby aspirn once a day for me.My doctor isnt concerned but just keeping an eye on it every 3 months.

You might want to get a complete blood count done on your next bloodwork and check your platelet count. Fish oil and aspirin should alter the adhesiveness of your platelets, but not the count. Low platelets often lead to easy bruising. It is just worth checking, IMO. Good luck, Lats!

Just a thought but do you take glucosamine? I was bruising very easily and my doctor told me taking glucosamine, especialily if it also has MSM and/or chondroitin could be the cause. I tried to take it several times and each time I would bruise easily and each time I stopped the bruising stopped.

One possibility

My mom takes a blood thinner (Plavix with a baby aspirin) after her heart attack and now bruises very easily. I would drop the fish oil to 3 grams a days and see what happens.

I forgot to mention that all NSAIDS also thin your blood (if those are in the mix)

I would cut the amount of asprin in half. When I went from one adult asprin a day to one baby asprin it stopped.
