I noticed that gums are not bleeding at all when I brush my teeth, the bleeding time after a laceration required a little pressure but stopped bleeding in less time then when I was on the aspirin, and I have not had any bruising even though I bumped myself a few times. These are the same situations in which I would have bruised when on the 81 mg aspirin. I am concerned that I do not have adequate coverage to prevent recurrent clots. Of course, I do not understand why I developed clots to start with since I was on the aspirin. Thank you. Linda Morris
