Hello everyone in the house, it has been a while I made post, hope everyone is managing well with their itp. As I posted before my itp started in 2o15 with pregnancy of 36 weeks, I still go for blood tests every 6 months, my question is this, do any one know if the itp is related to off and on bowls movement with blood? Or is just something else, any answer is appreciated. Thank you.

Blood in a bowel movement is always a concern and should be reported and checked out. Most often, it'll be from some minor, benign cause. It shouldn't automatically be attributed to ITP, especially if the count hasn't been dramatically low.

Thanks Janet, yes it's a great concern, after much Diarrhoea then some blood came in few occasions, my Gp runed blood test and my stool as well and the test came out normal and sent me for colonscopy yesterday so far now the endoscopist said they can't see any abnormal in my colons they took some biopsy, expecting result in some weeks hopefully will come back OK. Fingers crossed. Thank you Janet, how are you keeping yourself? Hope your platelet is playing fine on you.
