What are the possible causes of leucorrhoea?
There are a few possible causes of leucorrhoea, including:
Post-coital leucorrhoea (PCL) is caused by a virus. It most often affects women after they have had sexual intercourse, but it can also occur after other types of contact. Symptoms include a high fever and vaginal discharge that is thick and white. PCR therapy is the most effective treatment for PCL.
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is an infection of the vagina that can cause leucorrhoea. It most often affects women between the ages of 25 and 44, but it can occur at any age. Symptoms include a yellowish vaginal discharge that smells bad and is tough to toilets. BV can be treated with antibiotics or metronidazole, but it usually doesn’t cause lasting problems.
Lymphoid leucorrhoea is a condition in which the immune system attacks cells in the reproductive tract, including the uterus and fallopian tubes. This can lead to a high fever, vaginal discharge that is green or brown in color, pain during sexual intercourse, and infertility. Treatment involves antibiotics or surgery to remove the affected organs.
