hello all, i'm 31 yr old, no kids yet (never tried).have been spotting 3-5 days before periods fr 3 yrs now..i sometimes spot after sex too.recently dx with itp.had a cervical polyp..had to postpone my surgery b'coz of itp..i finally had my surgery on oct 11 but dint change my spotting..have a follow up gyny app next week..hoping it wud resolve next mnth( fingrs crossed)

my counts are not very low.touch wooo! in june it was 122 then 95 then went to hemo, told to go off NSAID'S 4r a mnth then went to 148 but within 1 mnth back to 122 at time of my procedure.just wanted to know if someone had this..

trying to know if there is a relation between itp & spotting as my gyno did a hysteroscopy & said everythin luked normal..
i had a cbc after 4 yrs in june so i'm not sure if there's any relation between these two..
i want to start with kids soon..itp &pregnancy always lingers in my head but i'm hopin we all can make it. :)
i have put up with this spotting since 3 yrs & it takes up almost 15 days a month..i was so hoping to get normal period this mnth but just my luck! :(
i have always been allergic to acetaminophen & now cant take nsaid's..i hav bad cramps.my hubby is a borderline diabetic..at times all these make me so frustrated but still hope everything will go back to normal soon...
thanks for reading!

I wouldn't know it if there is a relation between low platelets and spotting, but i do occassionally get some spotting. I am on the pill all the time, so i don't get a period at all and even now and it does usually seem to corespond to when my counts are on the lower side, i do get some spotting, i dunno if it would have anything to do with low platelets though or not, could possibly be, who knows

It's not uncommon to spot if your progesterone is low (which would make it hard to get pregnant anyway). Have you had your progesterone checked? Since it's easy and non-invasive you might want to have that done.

I've been spotting since i've had ITP even though I'm on progesterone. Mostly i wear panty liners and on an occasional heavy day I'll wear a pad. My counts are under 5 though so i chalked it up to that.

With nearly normal counts, I'd doubt ITP has anything to do with it either.
