Hi ladies! I have been bruising as of late really easy. I've also been fatigued. Iron tests have come back around 12. I want to start ttc soon, and I'm worried that something else could be wrong. Does anyone else bruise easily? I wake up with tons of bruises on my legs and arms. Someone suggested liquid vitamin k. Is this a good thing to try? Thanks!
Have you been to the Dr's yet? I hope all is ok!

I luurrrrrve to lurk!
Your iron is really low! I think it should be like 65-165 so 12 is too low.
I have very low iron as well and I always will bruise easily and be very fatigued when my iron is low. I take a supplement and that helps tremendously. I had to take even more of it when I was pg with all 3 of my kiddos.
GL - I hope you'll get a 2nd opinion and KUP on what they say.

My mom bruises very easily, as do I. I don't think there's anything wrong with you, certainly nothing that would deter you from TTC, but if it's really bothering you, I would talk to your doc about it!
