Neutrophil granulocytes

Neutrophil granulocytes, or just “neutrophils”, are the most common type of white blood cell you have in your body. These cells are a key part of your immune system, acting as your first line of defense that fights off infections and heals damaged tissue.
They also play a role in reproduction, from conception and implantation to enhancing the baby’s health during pregnancy and maternal health in the postpartum period. Reproductive hormones regulate how these cells function, which can determine pregnancy outcomes. When neutrophils are abnormal, it can lead to complications, such as recurrent miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, or gestational diabetes.
