Thanks for posting your query.

Decrease in WBC count with normal iron levels might happen due to a viral infection or HIV. Deficiency of minerals like zinc and copper can also be the causative factors.

Detailed investigations are needed to find out the exact cause.

Foul smelling discharge from the vagina is commonly indicative of bacterial vaginosis. A swab culture will help in diagnosis. Systemic antibiotics are the mainstay of treatment. Both you and your partner need to be treated simultaneously for complete cure.

I hope this answers your query effectively.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
