Coumadin and Vaginal Bleeding

My mom (70 years old) is on coumadin post stroke.  She took pepto bismal 2 days ago and developed vaginal bleeding similar to a period.  We went to the ER yesterday and they did blood tests - no anemia, INR was 2.8.  The doctor recommended that she have a Uterine biopsy.  My question is this - has anyone else on coumadin therapy experienced vaginal bleeding post menopause?  We found out from the pharmacist that Pepto is a no-no for those on coumadin because is has salicylates (sp?).  Just would like to know if anyone else has had this happen.  Thanks so much.  I'm so worried.
