WBC only means there is some type of infection present. You cannot use that to determine what is causing the infection. If you are concerned about stds, you need to specify you would like std testing. There are hundreds of possibilities when it comes to WBC.
Hey, thanks for your reply. I understand that you would not know where the infection came from it was elevated. But the question is, if there is no WBC elevation when they do a blood count, is there any reason to worry about any infection, including an STD?
