Is the white discharge leaving you pale?
Have you been experiencing a lot of discomfort recently? Are you getting that milky white discharge daily? Do you experience pain while passing urine?
Before you start jumping to conclusions, here are a few things you need to know about the thick white discharge coming from your vagina.
Thick White discharge - What is it and why does it happen?
You must have noticed stains of thik white discharge on your underwear in various shades of white. It is the vaginal discharge that is usually considered to be normal and serves different purposes like cleaning and moisturizing your vagina and helping to prevent and fight infections. It is a normal phenomenon, preceding ovulation, during the different phases of ovulation, pre coition (sexual intercourse) or during pregnancy.
It’s normal for the color, texture, and amount of thick white discharge to change at times, especially during your monthly cycles. But some changes in discharge mean there is a problem.
The white discharge is considered normal only if it is odorless (or is with a mild salty odor), white or transparent, and is not associated with any burning or itching sensation in the area.
Signs that your vaginal discharge is abnormal or due to an underlying disease:
· Vaginal itching, burning, swelling, or redness
· fish like smelly, unpleasant odor
· yellowish or thick curd-like discharge
· pain or bleeding during or after sex
· menstrual-like cramps or pain while passing urine
White discharge can be abnormal because of underlying bacterial or fungal infections like:
· Candidal Vaginitis (Vaginal Yeast infection):
It is one of the common reasons for white discharge. It is caused by a fungus called “candida albicans”. It occurs when this fungus is introduced into the vagina which disturbs the natural balance of the vaginal secretion. While it can be transmitted sexually, it is not considered as sexually transmitted disease, as it can also occur in women who are not sexually active.
The typical symptoms are white cheesy discharge, irritation and itching in the genital region, pain while urination, pain while coition, redness and soreness of the vagina. Reducing moisture in the genital area by wearing cotton clothes and undergarments can help prevent this type of infection.
The treatment for white discharge involves topical and oral anti-fungal medications. While these medications give more of temporary relief, white discharge treatment in homeopathy treat the infection effectively by bringing about immediate relief, as well as a long-lasting cure for the same.
· Bacterial Vaginosis:
Bacterial vaginosis is an inflammation of the vagina caused by an overgrowth of bacteria naturally found in the vagina upsetting the natural balance.
It is more common in women in the reproductive age, though it can affect women of all ages. The cause of bacterial vaginosis is unknown. Having unprotected sex, having multiple sexual partners, or douching frequently may put you at a higher risk of developing this infection.
The symptoms of white discharge include thin watery greenish vaginal discharge, fish-like odor from vagina, vaginal burning, or burning sensation during urination.
Usage of mild, preferably odorless soap, unscented tampons or pads helps reduce the risk of getting bacterial vaginosis. Avoiding multiple sexual partners or unprotected sex also helps minimize the risk of infection. Reduction in frequent washing or douching also helps reduce bacterial vaginosis.
Treatment for white discharge involves oral and a topical antibiotic that help bring down the infection and provides relief in symptoms. Homeopathic medications help effectively treat the infection and also prevent recurrence of it, that too without causing any side-effects.
Trichomoniasis is a common sexually transmitted infection caused by a parasite. The symptoms of this include a foul-smelling genital discharge, genital itching and painful urination.
Having protected sex can reduce the risk of developing this sexually transmitted disease.
White discharge treatment usually involves treating both partners with an anti-parasitic agent. Homeopathic medicines help in the rapid and effective treatment of white discharge symptoms as well as helps in bringing down the relapse of condition.
