Excessive discharge of sticky and foul-smelling white colored liquid from the vagina of females is called as leucorrhoea. Lack of personal hygiene or improper cleanliness of the genitals is chiefly responsible for occurrence of leucorrhea. It is a common condition that is not serious in nature and can be got ridden of with self-care.
What causes leucorrhoea?
Apart from insanitary conditions in women, leucorrhea may also be triggered due to infections in the genitals, low body immunity, repeated abortions or miscarriages, and excessive indulgence in sexual activity. Even unhealthy diet and lifestyle may also result in leucorrhoea in some cases. Women who depend largely on cold, sweet, oily, heavy and dense foods are at high risk of suffering from this condition.
