Important.: Further investigation is warranted to determine is you have immune thrombocytopenic purpura, gestational thrombocytopenia, preeclampsia, among other possibilities. All of those conditions can affect your pregnancy outcome and personal health, so please see your obstetrician and/or a maternal-fetal specialist for prompt diagnosis and appropriate management.
