Leucorrhoea is the excessive white discharge that comes out through your vagina. In simple words, it is called vaginal discharge. It is prevalent and faced by many women regularly during ovulation, that is, the time before they have their periods.

How do you know if it is Leucorrhoea? After two weeks of your menstruation, a change in the colour or amount of discharge accompanied by other symptoms like pain and itchiness may indicate that you have Leucorrhoea.

If the acid levels, pH, and hormones responsible for essential bacterial growth in the vagina observe any change, it may increase the risk of infection—Leucorrhoea or overgrowth of any normal bacteria.
