Leucorrhoea - Diagnosis

A clinical diagnosis is based on a detailed clinical history of complaints, namely:

  • duration of the complaint;
  • type of fungal infections;
  • frequency of sexual intercourse;
  • consistency, colour and odour of the discharge;
  • the time modality when it tends to increase; and
  • the contraceptive history.

A physical examination is essential to identify the inflammation and help identify and confirm the type of infection.

Blood tests: blood tests, if needed, may be recommended by our doctors.
