Hello dear Sunset,
Leucorrhoea is not always a pathological or abnormal condition. It is normal for women to experience vaginal discharge before menstruation, during ovulation, or during pregnancy. This normal vaginal discharge is clear to whitish, not accompanied by a pungent odor, nor is it accompanied by itching or burning in the female area.
However, there are times when vaginal discharge does not match the criteria mentioned above. This condition is called pathological or abnormal vaginal discharge. There are various causes that can underlie it, namely:
yeast infection or bacterial candidiasis infection, especially related to sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea and chlamydial parasitic infections, namely trichomoniasis bacterial vaginosis (BV), due to an imbalance of normal bacteria in the vagina Each of the causes above has different treatment steps, for example antifungal drugs for candidiasis, antimicrobials for parasitic infections and BV, and certain antibiotics to treat sexually transmitted infections. There are times when the underlying causes occur simultaneously and thus require combination therapy. Especially for vaginal discharge that doesn't heal, it would be nice to have it checked by a gynecologist so that vaginal fluid samples can be examined in the laboratory. This examination will identify the underlying causes of vaginal discharge so that it can be treated appropriately.
Nidhazole is one of the trademarks for metronidazole. This drug is classified as an antimicrobial, which works to stop the growth of anaerobic bacteria or protozoa. This drug is classified as a prescription drug so it can only be obtained if there is a doctor's prescription. Follow the recommendations of your doctor. In addition, during the treatment period, always make sure to keep your feminine area clean. Here are some suggestions:
rinse the genital area using clean water from front to back avoid using vaginal cleansing soap, also scented wipes and pads, choose cotton underwear and change them regularly, especially when the underwear is wet, have safe sexual intercourse. Hopefully the above information is useful.
