From this study (12 months ago):
Have always bruised easily but seems to have worsened and bruises are really dark. After my menstral period this month I am still bleeding - lightly in my urine sometimes more than others and also in stools/rectum. I am not eating right or very much at all but am consuming more alcohol than usual to help with stress
