Hello Welcome to health care magic Normal platelet count is 3-4 lakhs. A platelet count of 481 indicate acute decrease in the count and requires evaluation and treatment. Hence do confirm the count and consult your doctor for evaluation and treatment. Thank you

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

Hello dear, It is difficult to comment with just a platelet count,without any clinical details given. Anyhow,count is a bit low;but not too much(normal is about 2-4).Such count is very common with conditions like viral fevers,and become normal in few days. We can have a better idea if you could explain the circumstances that lead to the investigation. Take care,Thank you.
