For : For the future, whenever you have symptoms as described in your post you should seek medical attention right away. The fact that you have a coagulation problem means you are likely on an anti-coagulant; you are probably taking too much which resulted in bleeding. This problem can be fixed by adjusting your medication. Please start having close follow up with your doctor in order to avoid this problem in the future. Take good care.
