Nonoxynol 9


Yes, nonoxynol 9 and the condom itself can lead to inflammation of the vahina and elevated white cells. This is known as leukorrhea. It is not necessarily an infection like yeast.

Yes


Any infection can affect your WBC count - these are the cells that fight infection, so we expect the normal for your body to change when you have an infection. It may be the total count changes (up or down), or the ratios of different types of white blood cells changes (change in differential count).Talk to your doctor about what your specific numbers signal - the numbers are just one puzzle piece

Often


The absolute neutrophil count often goes up when there's a bacterial kidney infection. These are not to be taken lightly -- before antibiotics, they were major killers especially of young women.

NOT NECESSARILY


Sometimes your WBC count can fall precipitously as an infection worsens, because they adhere to blood vessel walls and then enter the tissues and are consumed by the process of fighting bacteria. If, however, the WBC was quite high, it may come down as treatment is effective.

Certainly.


Mild and even moderate infections can have little effect on the white blood count. More severe infections may change the white blood cell count. Sometimes, even mild changes in the white blood cells may not be detected by the automated blood count machines, but can be recognized by pathologists.
