Unless your diet is really poor, a vegetarian diet won't cause this. Please see your physician.
I've been a vegan for 26 years, and I've gotten cut plenty of times. Tools, harpoons, urban cityscape knife fights, etc. I never had a problem with excessive bleeding or lack-of-clotting. Seriously though, I get paper cuts and tool cuts once in a while, and it's never a problem.
