Sometimes you don't have any symptoms from thrombocytopenia. When you do, the main one is bleeding. You can bleed outside or inside your body. Sometimes it can be heavy or hard to stop. Some people get nosebleeds or bleeding gums. You might also have:
  • Easy or excessive bruising (purpura)
  • Enlarged spleen
  • Prolonged bleeding from cuts
  • Fatigue
  • Jaundice
  • Unusually heavy menstrual flows
These symptoms might not start until your platelet count is very low. If you notice any of them, call your doctor immediately.
