High levels of white blood cells in urine. What could that mean?

Pyuria: White blood cells in urine usually are there because of an infection in the urinary tract.

My best advice is to see your doctor and have a urine culture done to see what is going on. ...Read more

What is the connection between high vaginal pH and white blood cells?

Inflammation: Normally, the vagina has low ph. Sometimes, a change in the vaginal bacterial imbalance will cause the ph to go up. White blood cells seen in the vagina simply point to the fact that there is some degreee of inflammation in the vagina for whatever reason.

Maybe you are normal: I don't hear anything that says infection at present ( fever, redness, swelling, pus, pain). High WBC does not equal infection. What kind of infection did you have? Why are you taking iron and B9 (sic)? ...Read more
