    Default Unexplained bruising?

    Hey ladies just wondering what can cause unexplained bruising? Or has anyone had it and what has it been from? I woke up this morning with bruises dotted along both inner thighs, they weren't there yesterday and I'm 100% sure it's not from an injury (inner thighs are a bit hard to bump!)ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1431466365.012018.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1431466423.304303.jpg

    Could it be something to do with iron levels?

    I get the same. I have low factor 8 levels (haemophilia A) and low iron.. although neither existed before I was pregnant?

    Yep low iron does that to me. I can go to bed and scratch in my sleep and wake up with big bruises. Same if I rub a mosquito bite.

    Have you had your platelets checked with a blood test? I have chronic ITP and constantly have bruising although I don't bump myself. Maybe get your platelets checked.
