Dear Sir,

Sorry to hear about your problem. Your bleeding is definitely due to the warfarin you are consuming and it is best that you get the dose of warfarin titrated as soon as possible otherwise the bleeding will not stop.
You should consult your physician and even discuss stopping the drug for a few days and then resuming it once your bleeding starts.
Your previous INR was very high and gradually it is reaching the target range.

Hoping for the best.
