Thank you for your question.
Leucorrhoea is basically normal and often experienced by many women, but there are some abnormal vaginal discharge. I will try to explain some of the possible causes of vaginal discharge that you experience, namely:
Trichomoniasis, a vaginal discharge caused by a Trichomonas vaginalis parasitic infection, is characterized by a large amount of green-yellow vaginal discharge, foamy, sometimes smelly, vaginal discharge accompanied by pain in the vaginal area and itching. Vulvovaginal candidiasis, vaginal discharge caused by a yeast infection, is characterized by white lumps such as cheese, itchy swelling and pain around the vaginal lips. Bacterial vaginosis, vaginal discharge caused by bacterial infections, it is characterized by white, gray or yellow vaginal discharge, fishy odor, itching, pain when urinating. If the complaint is not treated immediately, there will be serious complications, such as: sexually transmitted infections, inflammatory pelvic disease, pregnancy if pregnancy complications will occur, and are more vulnerable to HIV.
My advice would be nice if you check yourself to the obstetrician, to do a vaginal swab examination, so that the cause of vaginal discharge becomes clear. Because treatment for vaginal discharge itself also varies depending on the cause.
There are a number of things you can do to reduce vaginal irritation, namely: avoid using soap, wear cotton underwear or absorb sweat, use a non-perfuming dressing, not have sexual relations first.
May be useful. Always healthy 😊
