Yes, actually, you should probably begin taking a calcium supplement. I too bruise easily but it helps tremendously to take a supplement like VIactive ( I love the vanilla and caramel) so try that and also, you may consider at some point getting your bone density checked. It is a good indicator of how much calcium you need to supplement. Don't take any more than 1000 mg or you could develop kidney stones.

I bruise very easily when I'm anemic and when my B-12 levels are down. Caution though - get a blood test to find out your levels before just taking supplements of iron. The b-12 will just pass through you and you won't o.d.
good luck!

Can be due to a deficiency of iron or vitamin C. You should get your blood tested and begin some supplementation to your diet of both iron AND Vitamin C. The calcium is a good suggestion, also.

I just found some old prenatal vitamins. Do you think that would be good? They aren't "TOO" terribly old..and have all of the things suggested here and more. This way I don't have to spend any money. I'll try it everyday for a couple of weeks, and see if the bruising stops. Also, I wonder if I will feel better in general. Have had wicked pms depression this last weekend. Bawled ALL DAY on Sat. I do feel better today, but haven't started yet, so I wonder why I was "SO DEPRESSED" on sat ONLY..and if it could be some other depression besides PMS related. I felt like teh MOMMY DEAREST mom. HWat is that actress' name...the one who screams NO WIRE HANGER...EVER!! I was beginning to feel like her, on Sat..I was looking for a shirt..and I kid you not..I freaked out..and threw every frickin' shirt from every drawer..and pulled piles of clothes out of my closet..looking for something. WHAT A MESS!!! I felt out of control..today, and sunday..I'm not feeling that way. SCARY though!! I don't like it when I feel that way. ANyone else ever get like that? SOul

you may want to try searching the web for more info - maybe webmd or something. (Also, I have in the past found many bruises - but that was due to my drinking to the point of black-outs in the past.)

I went through something like that and people told me I needed potassium to. I would try a centrum vitamin or something that has all the vitamins. You are obviously lacking one of them.

When I started into menopause, I was capable of flying into like a red-eyed rage, Soul!! That's when I went to the Doc and was put on hormone replacement therapy. (Bad choice.) I think in retrospect I was self-indulging too much and not taking responsibility for things that were happening in my life at the time.

I think there are some "life balance" things -- just eating, sleeping and exercising properly, that will help even out your feelings.

And I've always bruised easily. I think women tend to have the problem more than men, and fair-skinned, freckled, red-heads and blondes more prone. It's pretty common in my biological family.

It might be we need more calcium or iron than some people, rather than we do not eat right.

As hopeful suggests, a multi-vitamin like Centrum is probsbly a good idea.

Vitamin C is what I heard is lacking when we bruise easily.
Eat more foods with it.
Oranges, sweet red and yellow peppers, rosehips, and I'm sure lots more things. Look up the bruising on a health site, on the net search engine.

It could also be a blood disorder. If you continue to bruise easily, you should see your doctor. Sometimes certain medications will cause increase bleeding and or bruising, due to thinning of the blood, such as blood thinners and aspirin.
