In brief: Too complex to answe

There are too many factors to consider. Do you use hormones or tobacco? Do you have a personal or family history of blood clots? Do you take a blood thinner including daily aspirin? Have you had any type of cancer? How active and how overweight are you? All of these affect blood clot risks.
If there is a suspicion, get an ultrasound but a bruise/hematoma does not usually lead to venous blood clot
