Hi every body, I'm 27 years lady from jordan diagnosed as itp in dec,2011. I received cortisone for one year between iv and tablet, mabthera, and mabthera and there is no any improvement, with a lot of admission because of the vaginal bleeding and heavy period this year they started for me n-plate one inj weekly, first week there was little improvement again dropped less 10k. So they increase the dose for 2 inj.weekly .but the platelet number still unstable, (60-2) k. Plz any body can help me l sufferd a lot from the admission since My body responded only for ivig, since mostly I refused the admission unless if there is heavy vaginal bleeding as always my platlet mostly under 10 -2k. but always I'm afraid from intracranial bleeding. Since ivig will work only for 6weeks, then again will decrease. In this Sunday it reach 3k.my hemo want to admitted my but I refused as there is only gum bleeding. Because again it will drop.plz any body have any information can help me about the management of the heavy period and youe expirences with the heavy period,as l don't want to be admitted. Any diet, medication. Can help it increase platlet.thank you and sorry as my English is weak.
