Having a low platelet count causes the blood has too few platelets or specialized cells called platelets that help blood
to aid in blood clotting. This condition is also known as
thrombocytopenia, and can range from mild to very severe, depending on

thrombocytopenia after the pregnancy ends. Another time, this approach
could be preferred is when people just had a virus, especially children,
and have mild thrombocytopenia. Children are particularly good at low
counts recovery because the bone marrow to produce platelets tends

Following are the main reasons for low platelet count:

cells, such as red blood cells or WBC may also be low in many cases.
Bone marrow depression is due to many reasons like drugs, reactions to
drugs, alcohol, cancer, etc.
