I would definitely count "vaginal bleeding" as location ... how much more specific can you be than vaginal?
Diarrhea is also a symptom that is pretty specific as to location. It can only occur in one body part.
Now 'Hypertension" cannot be so easily identified with a body area or specific site, so there is no way to infer the location from that condition. (But if it resulted in epistaxis you could infer "nose.")
Hope that was helpful.
