What Is The Difference Between White Blood Cells And Vaginal Discharge?
, what’s the difference between white blood and vaginal discharge ???
Hello Vin, thank you for the question at HealthReplies.com.
White blood, or more commonly referred to as white blood cells (leukocytes) are blood cells produced from the bone marrow and can be found in the blood and lymph nodes, where these blood cells belong to the body's immune system and play a role in overcoming infections, inflammation or other illness. White blood cells themselves are divided into several types and each of these types has their respective roles in the body's immune system. White blood cell counts can also be examined through routine blood tests, which normally number 4,500-10,000 / mm3 (can vary depending on laboratory reference) and each type can also be distinguished and counted through an examination called a type count.
Leucorrhoea is a condition where there is secretion of fluid or mucus from the vagina. Leucorrhoea itself can be divided into 2 types, namely normal vaginal discharge and also abnormal vaginal discharge. Normal vaginal discharge is a vaginal discharge that is colorless, odorless and not itchy and generally occurs only in certain conditions such as sexual stimulation, a few days before menstruation, stress, hormonal changes in the body and several other conditions. While vaginal discharge is not normal is a vaginal discharge that has a color (gray / white-yellow / greenish-white), smells and can be accompanied by itching, where vaginal discharge is generally caused by infection by bacteria / fungi / parasites, or can also be caused by cancer of the cervix. Therefore, if an abnormal vaginal discharge arises, it should be immediately checked by a doctor because the condition requires further treatment to prevent complications such as pelvic inflammation, uterine infections, and others.
I hope this helps.
