Updated: Dec 28, 2019

Leucorrhoea is a thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge which can be thick, sticky or watery.

According to Tabers medical dictionary leucorrhoea is defined as a white, estrogen-related, scant-to-moderate, odorless, physiological vaginal discharge, normally preceding menarche and occurring during ovulation, during pregnancy, and in response to sexual excitement.

The term "physiological leucorrhoea" is used to refer to leucorrhea due to estrogen stimulation. It sometimes occurs before a girl has her first period, and is considered a sign of puberty.


Leucorrhoea may occur normally during sexual excitement, during pregnancy it is caused by increased blood-flow to the vagina due to increased estrogen.


Female infants may have leucorrhoea for a short time after birth due to their in-uterine exposure to estrogen (from mother).
