Leucorrhea is a medical problem that occurs in the genital area of females. Common symptoms of leucorrhea are: a whitish discharge from female’s genital area, itching, fatigue, pain in abdomen and lumbar region, constipation and/or headaches.
Leucorrhea is caused by an infection in the upper area of the vagina. What starts this disease is too much toxin build up that occurs in a woman’s body. This could occur when the the bowels, skin, lungs, or kidneys do not get rid of these toxins at the proper pace. Once these toxins have started to build up then there is inflammation in the uterus walls and then the abnormal whitish discharge is developed. The color of the discharge might not be completely white but it can vary from being a creamy yellowish color to light green. Sometimes young girls that have not started a menstrual cycle might develop leucorrhea due to the changes in their body. Some women could get it from dirty hands, soiled under wear, sex or masturbation; this can all lead up to the infection.
Leucorrhea is an infection that usually lasts for a week or two but for some women it could last for months or even more. If left untreated this problem can become chronic and may cause fever as well.
If pregnant woman gets infected by this disease, she should report to a gynecologist immediately as this disease can affect the sac, cervix and ultimately the unborn child in your uterus.
