Have chronic idiopathic leukopenia, low WBC. If I wanted to get pregnant, what effect would it have on the child and pregnancy?
Thanks for the query.
Chronic idiopathic leukopenia as the name itself suggests is of unclear etiology. Your numbers of 2.1- 3.4 are not low to be worried to get pregnant.
1. This will not have any effects on pregnancy. If the White blood count gets lower than 1000 cells /cubic mm, you may be at a risk of infection. At your current value, you or the pregnancy would not be affected much.
As planned you can go ahead with pregnancy.
2. Pregnancy is unlikely to have any influence on the while blood counts.
The bottom line is "currently I do not find any contraindications that suggest you to avoid pregnancy".
Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you need any more information.
All the best
