hi there, if your platelet counts are constantly low then you do need to get a bone marrow examination done and if the first aspirate was not adequate may be an experienced pathologist can try and do it again a second time. If still it is inconclusive then you may need a bonemarrow triphine biopsy to know the cause of your low platelets. You should also consider the temporary causes of thrombocytopenia and investigate for the same like very common infections like falciparum malaria and dengue to name a few. You need to get reviewed again by an experienced doctor. Do not neglect it as low platelet counts can lead to life threatning conditions in some cases. Take care
