Is frequent bruising normal? Even in instances where it seems I did not hurt myself? And bruises lasting for two weeks?

In brief: Needs evaluation

Frequent bruising may be normal for you.
Some people bruise more easily than others. Medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as certain health conditions may make bruising more likely. Bruises can take 10-20 days to completely resolve. If you have not been evaluated for this already, you should see a health care professional.

In brief: Consult Hematologist

I agree with previous advice about Aspirin and other drugs.
What age, sex, hemoglobin level and other health issues? However, I am concerned about bruisability lasting 2 weeks. Number 1 test is what is your "complete blood count" especially platelet count.
