I am NOT asking for medical advice! Basically, I've had my blood taken a LOT over the past year (and obviously occasionally before that) and for the first time, after having it done the other day, I have a huge bruise! I did notice that it hurt a bit more than usual and it bled for a little longer, but I didn't think much of it at the time. I always thought some people just bruised and some didn't. But now, my question is, is there something done wrong with the technique that causes the bruising? I want to know so I can avoid it when taking blood myself!
