Can a low white blood count and a low absolute neutrephil count cause frequent vaginal yeast infections?

No yeast infections for over 20 plus years and now having one after the other. Just saw last blood work and have never had low wbc and I am 75 years old.

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
I general a low white blood count and low neutrephil count are not directly related to yeast infections. The most direct causes are hormonal imbalances (which is very possible), antibiotics, diabetes, weak immune system (low white blood count can be a factor in this) lack of sleep, and poor eating habits.
The most important thing to do first is have your hormones checked. Then focus on strengthening your immune system through getting good sleeping and eating very healthy. Perhaps you may want to see a nutritionist to get a clear goal of meal planning and grocery shopping. Also drink A LOT of water!
Let us know if you have any more questions.
