I am an eighteen year old girl and over the past 7 months i have begun to get frequent bruises that do not go away.

I have never been the type to bruise at all and these bruises look pretty bad without any apparent reason to have them in the first place.
I have been diagnosed with acute low iron deficiency in the past because I had frequent bad head rushes.
I don't have head rushes anymore and my periods are not that heavy so i don't want to start taking iron again for no reason.

All of my bruises stay for weeks (I even have some that I have required in the month of march, still).

Most of these bruises are located on the front part of my shin.

what the ***l?

I have never been the type to bruise must I stress
