Leucorrhoea Like Porridge, Odorless Or Itchy?
Hi, I’m Eli, I want to ask you, last week I just got married and it was the first time I had intercourse, well today “after that I had vaginal discharge but it was like porridge but not too watery, it didn’t smell and it didn’t itch too
Leucorrhoea is a natural thing that occurs in women, vaginal discharge itself is a mechanism by which the female organs remove dead cells and also functions to clean and protect the vagina from irritation and infection. Leucorrhoea is still said to be normal if there is no change where the fluid is not excessive, not accompanied by a change in the color of the fluid, no change in odor and no other accompanying symptoms such as itching, pain during urination, pain during sexual intercourse or abdominal pain.
Leucorrhoea itself can become abnormal if there is an infection where the infection can be caused by fungal infections, bacterial infections, parasitic infections, sexually transmitted diseases or viral infections, each of which has different symptoms and characteristics of vaginal discharge. For this reason, pay attention to whether the vaginal discharge has increased and additional symptoms arise as described previously, if so, it is necessary to do an examination, one of which is to examine a sample of vaginal discharge to determine the cause and treatment will be given according to the cause.
Try to maintain the cleanliness and health of the intimate organs in order to avoid health problems that can arise, avoid using vaginal cleaning fluids that will affect the natural pH which can lead to infection, also avoid using sanitary napkins that contain perfume, clothes that are too tight and try to change clothes and clothes in regularly.
