    SO ive received info from midwife to say my white cell count is slightly higher.

    I was calling her to say I think I have Bacterial Vaginosis , so im hoping its that.

    GOt to go for a swab.

    Anyone else had this?

    you know you can buy them tests, which says if you have thrush or BV.
    Worth it to find out sooner? x

    Mine have always come back a bit high. I have asthma and read that people with asthma can have slightly elevated numbers. My MW said that as long as it is only a little high it isnt generally anything to worry about and can be caused by a minor bug or something. Its really high levels that they worry about.
