Hello there,

Thanks for writing in.

With the bruises, I would think of some bleeding disorder/trauma. But, you say you have been evaluated for the same and all the tests came back as normal.

Are you sure there is no history of trauma?

Have you been evaluated for thyroid disorders? If no, it is better to get a thyroid function test done, as thyroid disorders can also cause menstrual irregularities. It is also better to get an ultrasound of the pelvis, to rule out other causes. I feel it would be best if you consulted your gynaecologist.

Hope I have answered your questions. Feel free to ask me any further questions you might have.

Have a nice day.

Dr.Divya Kuttikrishnan
