White blood cells (WBCs), also known as leukocytes, are an important part of the body’s immune system. They are produced in the bone marrow and are involved in defending the body against infections, foreign invaders, and abnormal cells. WBCs are found in the blood and lymphatic system, and they play a crucial role in protecting the body from disease-causing pathogens.

There are several types of white blood cells, each with a specific function in the immune system. The most common types of white blood cells are:

  • Neutrophils: These are the most abundant type of white blood cells and are responsible for fighting bacterial infections. They engulf and destroy bacteria by a process called phagocytosis.
  • Lymphocytes: These are responsible for fighting viral infections and are essential in the development of immunity against foreign invaders. They are subdivided into B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes
  • Monocytes: These are responsible for engulfing and destroying foreign invaders and abnormal cells. They can also differentiate into macrophages, which are large cells that engulf and destroy foreign invaders.
  • Eosinophils: These are responsible for fighting parasitic infections and allergic reactions
  • Basophils: These release histamine, a chemical that triggers an inflammatory response, and are involved in allergic reactions.


The number of white blood cells in the body can be affected by various factors, such as infections, stress, medications, and medical conditions. An abnormally high or low white blood cell count can indicate an underlying health issue.

At Aashakiran IVF, white blood cell count is one of the important parameters that we check in our patients. It helps us to determine the overall health of our patients and their ability to fight infections. In some cases, a low white blood cell count may indicate a weakened immune system, which can affect the chances of conception and increase the risk of infections during pregnancy.

If we find any abnormalities in the white blood cell count of our patients, we may recommend further testing or treatment to address the underlying health issue. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care to our patients and help them achieve their dream of parenthood while ensuring their overall health and well-being.
