Symptoms of Polycystic ovarian syndrome, thrombocytopenia, low platelet count. Scheduled pelvic US, blood test. What is it?

My dghtr is 16 yrs old, dr. said symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome, ordered pelvic us, but bldwrk came back with very low platelet count, 64,000. did more bloodwork today, she put dx of thrombocytopenia, doing peripheral smear and cbc. Thiswas the first time she's seen this dr, failed to tell this dr. she was dx'd w/sweet's syndrome (biopsy was done and confirmed). Could these be connected? (autoimmune system)?

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is due to hormonal imbalance.
However decreased platelet count can be due to so many factors & autoimmune disorder is one of them.
So consult your doctor for further evaluation.
Take care
