VAGINAL DISCHARGE (LEUCORRHOEA)

VAGINAL DISCHARGE (LEUCORRHOEA)


Leucorrhoea (whites) is a whitish discharge from the female genitals. It is an abnormal condition of the female reproductive organs. If not treated properly in the initial stages, it may cause great weakness and grave complications. Secretions from the uterus and upper part of the vagina flow down and are reabsorbed in the lower parts of the vagina. This is the normal constant flow within the female organs. The whitish discharge is, however, caused by the presence of infection in any of these tissues and a variety of other factors. Leucorrhoea condition may continue for weeks or months at a time. In addition to the whitish discharge from the vagina, the patient of leucorrhoea feels weak and tired. She also suffers from pain in the lumbar region and the calves and a dragging sensation in the abdomen. It is of such common occurrence that many women and sometimes even small children are subject to it. At first the patient notices a slight discharge of whitish matter , which escapes from the vagina  drop by drop , and is unaccompanied by any unpleasant sensation. If neglected , as is most generally the case in the beginning , the discharge increases in quantity , and in some cases it becomes excessive. The quality , too , is changed, and it becomes greenish, yellowish or of a dark brown, almost black color, and gives rise to pains, excoriation, etc., of the parts. The general health also suffers; the appetite fails; the pulse becomes weak; the face pale and bloated; the eyes become dull and heavy, and are surrounded by yellowish / bluish circles; vision is impaired ; there is constant pain in back and loins; lowness of spirits; excessive debility, etc.
The exciting causes of leucorrhoea are numerous; anything which affects the general health may produce it; sometimes it is owing to the presence of  foreign bodies in the vagina; some of the worst cases of the disease, for instance owe their origin to long continued use of an intra uterine device intended to prevent pregnancy. Such cases can never be cured until the exciting cause is removed. The disease is sometimes owing to inattention to cleanliness. Syringing the parts with lukewarm water is beneficial.
