Leucorrhoea, also known as vaginal discharge is a common condition experienced by most women of all ages at some time or the other. This is because the female genitals are highly prone to infection as they are moist and covered most of the time. Also women tend to sweat a lot in this area. And fungal, parasitic, bacterial and sexually transmitted diseases are also the prime causative factors.
- Foul smelling vaginal discharge
- Pain in the cervical region
The homeopathic treatment for leucorrhoea begins with taking account the exact cause which is causing the vaginal discharge. In the case it occurs due to an infection the homeopathic remedies are more than able to cure not only leucorrhoea but also the infection.
If left untreated, the infection spreads inward into the cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, etc. It acts as a precursor of pelvic inflammatory diseases, salphingo-oophoritis (infection of fallopian tube and ovaries) which mostly result in pelvic adhesions like peritoneal adhesions and fallopian tube adhesions which obstruct tubes and may cause infertility.

Infection with these organisms may give rise to an irritating discharge that is often quite resistant to treatment.
Is it normal to have a lot of discharge during pregnancy?
Increased vaginal discharge is a normal part of pregnancy, but it's important to keep an eye on it and tell your doctor or midwife if you think it smells or looks unusual, or if you have pain, itching or soreness in the vaginal area. You may have an infection such as thrush, which can be easily treated by your GP.
