Clear or white fluid that comes out of the vagina is called vaginal white discharge (also known as leucorrhea). It is the most commonly experienced condition of women of reproductive age. This white discharge contains mucus that is normally produced by glands in the cervix and the walls of the vagina.
While most women experience vaginal white discharge at some point, some women have it more often and in larger amounts than others. For example, you usually get heavier discharge during pregnancy or if you’re sexually active or using birth control. It’s often slippery and wet for a few days between your periods (when you ovulate).
Any kind of change in consistency, color, and smell of the white discharge from the vagina could be a sign of a disorder. For example, fungal and bacterial infections can cause the white milky discharge to turn yellow, green, or brown. In some cases, the white creamy discharge could become lumpy if there is a yeast infection in the vagina. Abnormal vaginal discharge is often accompanied by a strong-smelling odor, itching, pain, and swelling around the labia.
So, how would you know there is something wrong and you should visit a doctor?

White Discharge Treatment
When it comes to the leucorrhoea treatment, women tend to seek medical help only when they are compelled to change their undergarments or feel a severe burning sensation, irritation and urgency to urinate. This makes the condition severe or embarrassing for the patient to get rid of it quickly. However, to get an effective treatment for white discharge, one has to keep patience so as to get long-lasting results.
To treat women related disorders including white discharge, homeopathy offers safe, long-lasting and effective treatment. The natural homeopathic medicines are based upon the underlying disease condition and the severity of the complaints.
The treatment of leucorrhoea varies according to the cause. Whatever the cause of leucorrhea or white discharge, homeopathy is very much capable of treating the problem.
In cases where leucorrhea occurs due to infection, homeopathic medicines not only cure leucorrhea but the infection too. Once the infection is cured, the excessive discharge is also cured. Even in cases where the cause is physiological only, the treatment for white discharge in homeopathy is equally effective.
The medicine helps to control infections, ease the distressing complaints, delay recurrence and prevent complications. The doctors guide methods of correct vaginal care in order to prevent repeated infections. Patients are encouraged to follow a healthy diet, for which nutritional guidance is provided.
