Abstract: This is a case report of a 48-year-old woman who presented with heavy per vaginal bleeding to the emergency department after being commenced on direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) for venous thromboembolism. She had significant bleeding which initially required resuscitation and stabilisation. Her symptoms were ultimately managed by changing her anticoagulation agent to therapeutic low molecular weight heparin with Clexane((c)) the agent of choice. This case study highlights the complexity of managing these patients as well as highlighting the need for ongoing research into DOACs in this area.
