Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.
It is extremely important to sort out WHY your platelets are low. While this might be normal for pregnancy
(called gestational thrombocytopenia
) there are other serious causes of platelet drop (e.g. preeclampsia
) that need to be ruled out. In addition, there are some diseases where this is related to an auto-immune process where there are even implications for the newborn after delivery. It is time to ask for a consult with a 'high-risk' OB doctor to discuss these issues.
I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
