“WHITE DISCHARGE-WHAT IS NORMAL AND WHAT IS ABNORMAL????”

Why do I get white discharge vagina?

Vaginal discharge serves as guard to female genital organs by keeping bacteria and dead cells away from the system. This is produced by glands of cervix and vagina. If this system is distorted, you will get abnormal discharge. There will be more discharge if you are in the phase of egg production, pregnant or sexually aroused.

What will tell me if it’s normal or abnormal?

Amount, colour and smell of the discharge and associated symptoms like itching, burning, bleeding between periods and after sex with your partner.

What types of colours are there for discharge to be labelled as normal?

Clear and watery without any odour, clear and stretchy, brownish before or immediately after periods……

What causes abnormal discharge vagina?

Infection by bacteria, fungus or parasite infestation, excessive use of antibiotics, steroids, birth control pills, perfumed soaps, allergy to soaps, deodorants and undergarments, cancer, diabetes, low Haemoglobin, thyroid disorder, old age due to loss of hormones like estrogens…..

What should I expect from my doctor?

Your doctor will do your check-up after asking few questions and can order some tests to reach a conclusion.

When to seek an appointment from a doctor?

Discharge associated with fever, foul smell, pain lower abdomen, weight loss without any disease, fatigue and increased frequency of urination, bleeding between cycles or after sex.

What are the tests to diagnose it?

What if I don’t get any check-up or treatment?

If discharge is normal then nothing to worry, but before you label it as safe you need to have a check-up by your doctor. But if discharge is associated with any of the above mentioned symptoms, be careful. You may have cancer, infection which may be in early stage and curable.

How can I avoid or prevent this?

Practice good local and sexual hygiene, wear loose cotton underwear. Douches should not be used chronically as they may destroy useful bacteria.

    1. Thanks Meenu for your query. There are so many reasons. First of all it can be normal in your ovulation period or premenstrual. But if it is associated with itching or foul smell or fever, then it’s abnormal. You need to understand its reason. It can be due to some infection, worm infestation, anaemia, allergy to soap, deodorants or even to undergarments.
