Homeopathy for Leucorrhoea

Leucorrhoea is the most common and frustrating problems in females. It is not a disease but a symptom of some underlying disease. The source of the discharge may be from the uterus, cervix, vagina or vulva.

Types of Leucorrhoea

Physiological: A vaginal discharge at puberty, during pregnancy, at the time of ovulation and during the premenstrual stage is relatively normal due to increased vascularity of the genital tract and needs no treatment.

Pathological: It is a discharge taking place due to disease or malfunction of the female reproductive tract. It needs urgent attention, hygiene, and cure. Overlooking pathological leucorrhoea can lead to severe problems like infertility and complications of the uterus. The nature of discharge differs from thin to thick bloody discharge with a foul smell.

  • Strong smell or frothy discharge and rashes or sore spots on the genitals, etc.

Homeopathic Treatment for Leucorrhoea

Homeopathy always tries to find an individual remedy for each case. From the treatment’s approach, it is better to bring it to the normal state than to stop it because physiologically it is vital. If it is stopped totally, vaginal dryness can result, which may cause pain & distress in sexual activity.

Also, if it is not treated appropriately, it may often persist and sometimes it can be infected and become persistent. Homeopathy boosts the immune system which plays a very important role in the natural elimination of disease organism or the disease itself and also in prevention. Homeopathic medicines are based on the nature and time of the discharge. The treatment can give everlasting relief to frequent leucorrhoea.
