I've had my CBC done 5 times in the past 5 days. Have I lost too much blood?

This is Dr. David

no. each CBC only takes out a small amount of blood

your bone marrow can replace the blood that is lost

why did you have 5 CBCs done in 5 days?

do you have a blood disorder?

If there was any issue with loss of blood, they would have seen it on the most recent CBC?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

they would have seen it on your most recent CBC.

you don't have to worry about 5 blood draws

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Okay thank you. I was just calculating it and it's been 12 over the past month but if it would be seen on CBC then there is no need to be worried (correct??) because they said all looked well except a low white blood cell count for some reason, which I've had for quite some time.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

there is no need to worry.

your CBC checks all the blood cells.
