Leucorrhea

Leucorrhea at its very basic is a white vaginal discharge. It is not to be confused with normal vaginal discharges during the normal cycle. A woman's normal cycle consists of menstrual bleeding, a few dry days, then a sticky discharge which then becomes creamy and then either watery or the consistency of egg white. This is fertile cervical mucus. This, on the other hand, is a continuous thin white vaginal discharge.

Symptoms

Symptoms include the obvious white discharge from the vagina, fatigue and weakness. Some women also experience pain in the lumbar region and in the calves. They may also feel a dragging sensation in the abdomen. Secondary symptoms may include constipation, intense itching and frequent headaches. If one develops chronic leucorrhea, the symptoms of irritability and black circles under the eyes also appear.

Causes

It appears when the body is in a toxic condition. This is most frequently caused by poor eating habits. When a toxic condition occurs and the organs of elimination like the skin, bowels and kidneys cannot eliminate enough toxins, the body also uses the mucous membrane in the uterus and vagina to rid the body of toxins. Infection may also occur after childbirth, unhygienic conditions and displacement of the uterus.

Cautions

If left untreated, leucorrhea becomes chronic and may continue for months at a time.
