Brief Answer:
No need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Your last two platelet counts are slightly low. But if your other parameters are normal then it is not significant.
Simple viral infection or non specific cause can leads to this. Many normal healthy person have this types of count.


So you should not worry about that. Just be relaxed.

You should go for repeat blood count after a month. Mostly it will come back to normal.

In between if you have any symptoms of bleeding then consult your doctor urgently.


Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
