As you are on Asprin and Ticagrelor and you bleed easily it would be ideal for you to check your bleeding time (BT) to check Platelets function. Combintaion of Asprin and Ticagrelor increases risk of bleeding and both are not indicated in combination

You should continue rest of medication .

But please ask your dr about Ticagrelor and Asprin combination .

Good luck .
