Symptoms, Causes and Treatments


Leukorrhea or (leucorrhoea) is a thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge. There are many causes of leukorrhea, the usual one being estrogen imbalance.


Some of the common leucorrhea or white menstruation symptoms include:

  • Whitish or yellowish discharge from the vagina.
  • Frothy and foul smelling discharge.
  • Pain in the calves and lumbar region.
  • Lethargy and weakness.
  • Heaviness in the abdominal region.
  • Vaginal itching.
  • Constipation.
  • White menstruation symptoms like severe irritability and black eye patches


To a considerable degree the causes of leukorrhea are conditioned by the age and hormonal state of a woman’s body. In children it is caused by intestinal bacteria, streptococci (after scarlet fever), and gonococci. In young women, leukorrhea is caused by hormonal disturbances. With the beginning of sexual activity, leukorrhea may be caused by trichomoniasis or by gonorrhea. During menopause, so-called senile vaginitis often occurs, accompanied by leukorrhea; it is associated with atrophy of the mucous membrane of the vagina and the vagina’s susceptibility to injury.
