Dr. Diptanshu Das MD

The underlying cause needs to be identified. Bleeding manifestations may occur with such a low platelet count. Please reply with thanks.

Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar MD

Yes, it is concerning. You need to have further evaluations to find out the exact cause.

Dr. Raju A.T MD

No, low platelet count can lead to bleeding complications. You should have been referred to a hematologist. This is not related to pregnancy.
