Leucorrhoea, also known as Likoria, is a medical condition that affects women and is characterized by the presence of yellowish or whitish vaginal discharge. This type of discharge is typically thick in consistency, and it often causes concern for affected women, who may worry that they are afflicted with a disease. However, in most cases, the underlying cause is simply a vaginal infection.

Although not serious, leucorrhoea can be uncomfortable and treatment options are available, including lifestyle changes and medication. Prompt medical attention is recommended to receive accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Vaginal discharge may occur before menstruation or due to sexual stimulation. Some discharge acts as a natural lubricant.Experiencing Leucorrhoea is normal during pregnancy, menstruation, infection, and hormonal irregularities.


Leucorrhoea is a common condition among women, with three main types: 

inflammatory, parasitic, and physiological. 

Inflammatory Leucorrhoea is usually caused by an organic bacterial infection, which leads to inflamed vaginal mucus and yellowish discharge with an odour. 

Parasitic Leucorrhoea is caused by the presence of a protozoan parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis, which leads to intense vaginal itching and a thick, yellow discharge.
