Leucorrhoea, also known as vaginal discharge, is a normal and common occurrence in women. It involves a white or yellowish discharge from the vagina that can vary in consistency. While some amount of discharge is normal, changes in color, odour or consistency indicates an infection or other health issue.


Leucorrhoea can have various causes, including:

  1. Hormonal changes: Fluctuations in hormones during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy or menopause can lead to increased vaginal discharge.
  2. Infections: Bacterial, fungal or parasitic infections such as yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can cause abnormal discharge.
  3. Poor hygiene: Inadequate genital hygiene can contribute to the development of infections and increased discharge.
  4. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs): Infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhea or trichomoniasis can cause changes in vaginal discharge.
  5. Irritants: The use of harsh soaps, douches, or certain laundry detergents can irritate the genital area and lead to increased discharge.
  6. Allergies: Allergic reactions to certain fabrics, latex or other materials in contact with the genital area cause leucorrhoea.
  7. Certain Medications: Some medications alter the balance of vaginal flora, leading to changes in discharge.
  8. Chronic Illnesses: Conditions like diabetes or immune system disorders can affect the body's ability to fight infections, contributing to leucorrhoea.


The primary symptom of leucorrhoea is an abnormal vaginal discharge. However, associated symptoms  include:

  1. Changes in discharge: An increase in volume, change in color (white, yellow, green) or an unusual odor.
  2. Itching or irritation: Discomfort or itching in the genital area.
  3. Pain or discomfort: Pain during urination or sexual intercourse can be associated with certain causes of leucorrhoea, such as infections.
  4. Redness and swelling: Inflammation of the vulva or vaginal tissues.
  5. Burning sensation: A sensation of burning while urinating or during other activities.


Diagnosing leucorrhoea involves a combination of medical history, physical examination, and sometimes laboratory tests.

  1. Medical history: The healthcare provider will ask about the individual's medical history, including details about the nature of the discharge, associated symptoms, menstrual cycle, sexual activity and hygiene practices.
  2. Physical examination: A pelvic examination is often performed to assess the vagina, cervix, and surrounding tissues for signs of infection, inflammation or other abnormalities.
  3. Laboratory tests: Depending on the suspected cause, the healthcare provider recommend tests such as a vaginal swab or culture to identify specific pathogens, a Pap smear to check for abnormal cervical cells, or blood tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
  4. Imaging studies: In some cases, imaging studies like ultrasound is used to assess the pelvic organs if there is a suspicion of underlying structural issues.
