Hello! I justa gave birth. I wonder how you guys cope postpartum with ITP? I have a history with Itp and it got back when i was pregnant with twins and was only detected when i was 37 weeks. It was a messy, life-threatening event for the three of us. Luckily, got past that. They are safe now. But me i will continue with the medication. Which brings me to my question.

What is your postpartum care? And specifically,how long does lochia last with patients like us. It's been 14 days since i gave birth and i still get bleedings but not extreme ones. And this is on top of my medications.

Thanks for your answers guys.

Hi Poy0620,
Congratulations on the birthday of your twins, I had twins 8 years ago but not with itp, I had my last baby 3 years ago with itp, diagnosed at 36 weeks pregnant. My lochia lasted for 5 weeks, just be patient it will clear off. What medication are you and what are your count?

Hello! Thank you for replying!

It's been two weeks since i gave birth and i worry becausw i still bleed. But not that much to fully soak a maternity pad in a day.

My medications are 30mg/day prednisone, folic acid, and some for my gestational hypertension.

How about you?

Hi Poy0620
For the bleeding, give it some time it will eventually settled down, I think you still need your iron tablets to keep the hemoglobin up. For the Prednisone I was the same at 30mg for 2 weeks after given birth, I started tapering down by 10 every 2 weeks and my platelet was at the normal range for 2 years until it went down due to the copper coil I fixed, but now I am back to my normal range after 2 months of Prednisone. Don't be worried everything will get settled with time.

I'm back at the hospital because my count dropped at 22 even with prednisone. It seems i am not responding to it. We are opting for IVIg but my doc says if ever we go for it, he would have to administer a bone marrow test first. We are still not sure how i'm going to be treated. Gave birth through CS and i think my wound has to do with my platelet not rising up because im still healing. Does anyone have the same case as me?
