Can Nonoxynol-9 result in vaginal inflammation and higher white blood cell count in vaginal discharge? Or is WBC count only related to infection?

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.

Sickle cell trait...


Will not produce the anemia that you describe. You should work with your Dr. to identify the cause and to correct it. I hope that you are feeling better after the care you received, and together with your Dr you will get to the bottom of it. Good luck to you. Keep us posted.

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

No, but...


... your white cell count, including your absolute counts of lymphocytes and neutrophils, flutuates wildly in response to the simple vicissitides of living, including the microbe invasions that you never know happen. Don't pay it any attention until the numbers go way off normal.

Many causes.


Low WBC can be due to nutritional factors, infections (esp. viral infections), autoimmune diseases, inhereted defects, leukemias and other bone marrow cancers, meylodysplasia, drug reactions, and even unknown causes. The problem with this is infection, but the risk depends on how low the WBC is. Only with very low WBC is there a risk of death.
