What is Leucorrhea?
Leucorrhea refers to vaginal discharge varying in color and character. The colour may vary from white to yellow to green and may even be bloodstained. The character of leucorrhea may be bland, acrid, ichorous (foul smelling and watery), irritating, thin or thick, offensive or non-offensive. Some amount of vaginal discharge is normal and plays a role in lubricating the vagina as well as protecting it. But leucorrhea that is offensive and ichorous needs to be investigated and treated. Leucorrhea is experienced by women of all age groups at some point in their lives. The various causes of leucorrhea are estrogen imbalance, infection (bacterial/fungal), pelvic inflammatory disease, sexually transmitted diseases.
