Hello Mrs. Iksan,
Thrombocytopenia or low platelet levels in pregnant women can indicate a serious condition. Thrombocytopenia in pregnant women is found to be 10-12%, 70% of them are gestational thrombocytopenia whose cause is unknown and generally does not cause certain abnormalities. But gestational thrombocytopenia does not usually cause a platelet count below 70,000, so it is possible that you are experiencing another medical condition.
21% of thrombocytopenia was due to preeclampsia, 3% was due to ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) and 6% was due to other causes, for example:
Infections, such as dengue fever
Considering that your platelet count is currently 24,000, it is necessary to do a thorough examination and rigorous handling. It is necessary to monitor the general condition, blood pressure, and monitor for bleeding. At this time you should follow the procedure for examination and treatment, your internal medicine specialist must have considered the various possibilities. Internal medicine specialists will also work with your gynecologist to try to keep you and your baby in good health.
