Abstract

Leucorrhoea is a very common problem faced by women. Leucorrhoea is defined as a whitish or yellowish discharge of mucus from the vagina. It is often accompanied by other symptoms like feeling of weakness, pain in the back and calves, pruritis on and around the vulva, thighs etc. There are many causes of leucorrhoea, the usual one being oestrogen imbalance. The other pathological causes which increase vaginal secretions are bacterial, fungal infections or STDs etc. Most women are highly embarrassed by this problem and also avoid discussing the problem with their medical health care providers, which is why its treatment could be a bit of a challenge. Many women also avoid and show negligence in taking oral medication. Douching with herbal decoctions is very effective in curing physiological as well as pathological leucorrhoea. Yoni Prakshalan is an Ayurvedic therapy of cleaning vaginal area with medicated decoctions or oils. It is seen to be quite effective in leucorrhoea even in those caused by inflammation, infections etc.
