She has to be investigated further

If it is abnormal,she has to go for Ultrasound abdomen,CT scan abdomen,Colonoscopy.The first two will describe her ovaries and uterus status.
Regarding menstrual problems,her hormonal status has to be checked.
Regarding bruises,she should investigate with Bleeding time,Clotting time,plasma thromboplastin time.
