Leucorrhoea or in medical language is called leukore or flour albus, is a liquid that exits from the vagina / pubic burrows excessively. Under normal circumstances, this liquid does not come out, but not necessarily the liquid that comes out is a disease.
Actually, vaginal discharge can be distinguished from the symptoms of vaginal discharge that arise. These symptoms can be observed from the nature of the fluid that comes out when vaginal discharge takes place. The source of the fluid itself can come from the vagina, cervical fluid, uterine fluid, and fluid that comes from the fallopian tubes.
If the liquid that comes out clear, slimy a lot but does not smell then this is something that normally happens when a woman is approaching menstruation, excess hormone estrogen, and stress. This type of vaginal discharge is also common in pregnant women.
If the liquid that comes out is like condensed milk, it is sticky, very much with a smell that is not so striking that it might have been inflamed on the cervix/cervix (cervicitis) and vagina (vaginitis).
The liquid that comes out is brown, runny like water, very much and moist, it is possible that the woman suffers from vaginitis, cervicitis, vascular disorders in the cervix, endometriosis and during cancer treatment with radiation. Brown color arises due to bleeding that occurs due to the disorder.
If the liquid is gray with a bloodline, runny like water, very much and foul-smelling coming out of the vagina, it is likely that the woman has vaginal ulcers, vaginitis. Another possibility that needs to be watched out for is cancer, both malignant and benign.
If the liquid that comes out is pink, liquid, very much but does not smell, it is likely that a non-specific bacterial infection has occurred. These symptoms also arise when a woman has excess estrogen.
If the liquid that comes out white, runny with many spots, musty smelling accompanied by pain when urinating and itching around the genitals, it is likely that the woman has an infection caused by fungi. Candida albicans is a fungus that most often perches on a woman’s genitals.
If the liquid that comes out is greenish yellow, foamy, red, very much, itchy, foul-smelling and is found to be tender around the genitals and redness of the vagina, then there may be an infection caused by Trichomonas vaginalis protozoan germs.
Finally, if the discharge comes yellow, thick, very much, feels hot and itchy in the genitals, tenderness in the area around the genitals, pain when urinating, then the possibility of infection caused by Neisseria gonorrhea or more popularly called GO.
If you find vaginal discharge that is not good as described above, it is better to consult with the nearest doctor. Delay in treatment will make complications. Generally, it is germs that have risen to the pelvis resulting in a disease known as pelvic inflammatory disease. Long-term complications can cause infertility due to damaged and sticky organs in the genitals, for example fallopian tubes.
