Homeopathy treatment of Leucorrhoea or White Discharge

Dr Batra's Doctors

Leucorrhoea is a medical term for excessive milky white discharge from the female genitals. It is commonly experienced by married and pregnant women. The typical characteristic of leucorrhoea i.e. thick white discharge with foul smell makes it embarrassing for women to get into social gatherings and even engage in personal affairs.

Therefore, the affected women need reassurance, prevention from infections and some counseling along with the treatment as most of the women’s health problems are psychosomatic in nature. If not treated properly in the initial stages, it may become chronic and the infection may spread inwards into the cervix, uterus or fallopian tubes.

Homeopathy treatment for white discharge

Generally, women tend to seek medical help for leucorrhoea only when they are compelled to change their undergarments or feel a severe burning sensation, irritation or urgency to urinate. It is advised not to wait for the symptoms to flare-up. Consult a doctor as soon as you notice the symptoms so that you can stop the infection from spreading.

Leucorrhea treatment options vary due to the wide variety of its causes. For example, in case of a bacterial infection, your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic to reduce the symptoms and kill bacteria. Antibiotics use, however, may lead to antibiotic-resistance in your body and disrupt the bacteria balance in your vagina leading to yeast infection discharge. Furthermore, they do not work with your immune system to keep recurrences at bay as they indiscriminately kill the bacteria that your immune system should be killing on its own. In several cases, where hormonal imbalance is the main reason for white discharge, conventional treatment does nothing to correct it, thereby increasing the chances of recurrence of the disorder.

Hence, we advise you to take homeopathy treatment for white discharge for an effective cure. Homeopathy potentially works by maintaining the hormonal balance and boosting your body’s immune system to overcome the infection. Homeopathic medicines for leucorrhoea helps to control infection, ease the distressing complaints, delay recurrence and prevent complications. Moreover, they are made from natural substances and hence do not cause any side-effects.
