Asked by kcrittenden

Q: Bladder infection and high white blood cell count?

I posted yesterday that I had a uti sentsation and since then I am now 6dpo, and last night I went to the clinic. The Dr said I had an very high white blood cell count and a bladder infection. She sent my pee to the lab for more tests. I am very nervous! I am now taking Macromid for the infection, but dr assured me it was safe if I am pregnant. Could I be pregnant? Is that why my white blood cell count is too high? I just need answers! Help me please!

I ended up having a bad bladder infection. I am now 8 dpo and no sign of af yet! Got a faint bfp yesterday morning and this morning! Im excited, but nervous. I going to wait and try at 11 dpo! Dont give up girl! You could very well be pregnant because pregnant women are more like to get uti's and bladder infections then a not pregnant women. Or it could be all the BDing lol! Good luck and let me no how things work out for you! Sticky vibes to you my dear!

I understand what you are saying. I explained to my dr I was ttc and she said pregnant women are more likely to get a bladder infection or uti then others. And with my first pregnancy I got a uti and bladder infection twice. So to confuse people but I should have brought that up in my question. And thank you for answer, it was blunt, I just wasn't clear enough.

As for it being "too high" that probably just means you've had the infection for awhile and your body is working really hard to fight it. Sorry if my last post came across abrupt, but you can't convey emotion well online. Good luck.

White blood cell counts rise to heal the body and fight infection, thats why the previous member AND your doctor said that it is from the infection. The white blood cells wouldn't rise because of pregnancy unless they were fighting it, which is unlikely, since you DO have an infection. Pregnancy and the infection/wbc count are more than likely unrelated.
