Is idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura hereditary? See answer
I was first diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, which then progressed to Evans syndrome. I had a splenectomy and have since been in remission. My husband and I have been together for 10 years, and in this time I have not conceived. Can Evans syndrome cause infertility? If I do get pregnant, would there be a chance my child could have the same condition? See answer
