Leucorrhoea is a condition in which there is a whitish discharge from the vagina. It may be thick and viscid, and foul smelling, if it is caused by some infection. In addition to infection, some hormonal and metabolic disorders are also responsible for the condition. Ayurveda considers that leucorrhoea is caused by the vitiation of kapha; it occurs commonly among weak, emaciated, and anemic women. It could also be due to inflammation of the womb following childbirth, displacement of the uterus, or gonorrhea. Among young females, it may be due to thread worms, as the result of general debility combined with lack of cleanliness or infections.
