Here I am with a very sensitive issue of women, Leukorrhea. It a normal thing for girls and women out there. But it may cost you when avoided.
It is the thing when many women get embarrassed while talking about. But I think we should think about our body and its requirements first. Love yourself, love your body and love everything whether it is food fashion or vaginal care.
Treat your vagina as a body part like any other. Hygiene is a very important thing to do.
Leukorrhea is a vaginal discharge. It is actually also known as white or yellowish discharge. It can happen at any age. it may go for a while and come after some years. There is no consistency of occurrence.
There are many causes for this. I am here to explain everything about it. I first gonna give my experience regarding this.
I had that when I was 15 yrs old. I got that after my periods arrived. sometimes it may come before periods. I then went to a doc and I was told that I had an infection there and I had to take some medicine.
But it never ends for me actually. It happened after some years again then completely gone and then came.
Then after I got pregnant it started like OMG. I again went to the doc and I was prescribed Vwash plus for vaginal wash because the ph level is different there and I maintain my hygiene like never before then it reduced some level but not gone.
Then I was told by the doc that it’s normal during pregnancy to have vaginal discharge. It should not be like too much that you found you panty wet in every discharge. It occurred three to four times a day or maybe more.
There is nothing to worry for this is in a limited amount. So I start a brief discussion about the same as
There are many causes actually but the main things are
Infection, yeast infection
White or yellowish or grey color
Very thick or mucus-like or may be thin
It is odorless mostly
Have a mild smell
3. When you should take it seriously during pregnancy
1. When in every discharge you found your pants wet. So this is too much. Consult your doc.
2. When it changes its color. Become green or darker or have a blood spot or clots then consult your doc.
3. When it smells very fishy or very strong, then there is some infection around there. So consult your doc.
4. If you feel itching and irritation and any kinda pain then consult your doc.
4. What should I do
Never treat it by yourself. Always notify this to your health care provider.
You should use cotton panty liners if it makes you feel more comfortable.
Wash your vagina with Vwash to maintain the ph level their
Maintain your hygiene like never before.
There are some good and bad bacteria in the vagina and you have to maintain the good bacteria there, so never use anything that affects those. Always always always consult your doc.
