Random bruising on legs please give opinions

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi all,

I’m 25 year old woman, healthy for the most part ..I’ve been experiencing random bruises only on my legs mostly sometimes  thighs for about 3 months. They are painless bruises and do end going away in 2-3 weeks maybe longer 

The first dr I went to said maybe I just bruise easily and if I have no other symptoms not to worry . I was given a blood clotting blood and and blood count, iron 

3 months ago I had my first blood test My iron levels were low (however they have been my whole life)

Blood clotting results were normal 

platelet count was low ( I was told this number changes and doesn’t mean anything)

I am getting a second opinion and full blood test to be sure 

I just want to see if anyone has experienced this 

I will try add photos if I can
