Dear Chokky

By having low platelets does not mean that you cannot fall pregnant, if you have difficulty in falling pregnant despite having low platelets it is usually caused by something else. However it would be important to find out the reason as to why your platelets are low as certain conditions that cause low platelets may cause problems if you do fall pregnant. So you need to see your physician to assess the cause of the low platelets and then see your gynaecologist and he/she would advise you as to whether the condition you have present would impose a problem in pregnancy.
