Homeopathic Remedies For Leucorrhea and Vaginal Discharges

The fluid secretion from vagina is referred as vaginal discharge medically known as leucorrhea. Some amount of this fluid is daily secreted that lubricates the vagina, cleans it by carrying away dead cells and protects against infection. Mostly vaginal discharge is normal and under normal circumstances it can be fluid, white or clear watery, sticky and vary in amount depending on the time of menstrual cycle. But vaginal discharge if attended with foul odour, itching, burning, pain or has changed colour and consistency then it may be arising from some health condition like a vaginal infection. So here medical help is necessary to rule out the cause. Natural homeopathic remedies for Leucorrhea are made of natural substances and are completely safe with no side effects.
