I'm 18 years old and have irregular vaginal bleeding and a high white blood cell count. What could this mean? What are the possible things that could be wrong with me?
With the limited amount of information given, it is very difficult to say if these things are related or not. Based on the fact that you know that your white blood cell count is high means you have visited a medical professional. Did they give you a possible diagnosis? Perform a pregnancy test?
Elevated white blood cell count usually signifies an infectious process that is occurring or has recently recurred and is resolving. High WBC count with irregular vaginal bleeding can mean a vaginal infection, or even a missed miscarriage.
I hope you follow up with your doctor for further investigation. A more detailed history, physical, and diagnostic testing should shed some light on your situation, and lead to a diagnosis, and ultimately treatment if indicated.
Good luck. Read more

Body recycles its dead cells, that included white blood cells as well as cells in other organs. Enzymes breakdown the proteins, fats and DNA and the components get reused. If there is inflammation and too many WBC accumulate and die, that results in pus formation.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

White blood count: The white blood count, or neutrophil count, varies on a regular basis within a normal range, in response to various challenges to the immune system. It is normal for it to vary somewhat, and it would not be a good idea to take anything to try to make it not respond. If it raises to an abnormal level, it needs to be evaluated. Good luck. Read more

I have had a series of fluctuating white blood cell counts: in the 3.0 range then 2.5 then 4.2. Should this be of concern? Is this up/down normal?
Hematologist: Low white counts such as yours are not necessarily serious if your red cell series and platelet counts are normal. Occasionally this pattern is seen in connective tissue disorders like lupus, however. A hematologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you and order the appropriate tests as well as arrange a proper follow-up schedule which is important. Read more
