White Discharge Treatment

White Discharge

White discharge in women is a common problem and is also known as vaginal discharge. It depends on the woman’s menstrual cycle and is higher before ovulation. Vaginal discharge or white discharge is perfectly normal, but if the discharges are foul-smelling, itchy, or painful, this can be a source of concern.


Vaginal discharge is an important function of the female reproductive system and is the fluid produced by the cervix and vaginal glands. Their function is to carry away dead cells and bacteria that can cause infection. This is an essential and regular function due to its ability to cleanse the vagina from the inside. Women who are breastfeeding, ovulating, or sexually aroused can experience varying amounts of discharge. Vaginal discharge from pregnant women tends to smell different, especially due to poor personal hygiene.

Abnormality in White Discharge

Pregnant women and women expecting children tend to notice this normal white discharge. Some women observe this white discharge after sexual intercourse. On the other hand, the signs of the problem are indicated with the arrival of colored discharges and odors, followed by discharge consistency. In problematic cases, there may be vaginal itching, burns, infections, and any other complications.

Causes of Abnormal Discharge

Vaginal discharge is caused by an imbalance of healthy bacteria in the vagina. Other things that can affect this situation and cause large imbalances are:

  • Birth control pills
  • Any antibiotics or steroids
  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Diabetes
  • Yeast infections
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Cervical cancer
  • Pelvic infection post surgery


Different treatments depend on the cause of the vaginal infection. Yeast infections can be treated with medications that are inserted into the vagina. Yeast infections are treatable through oral medications. White discharge is treated with antibiotics such as tablets. Trichomoniasis disease is treated with oral antibiotics.
