Woman usually neglects her own health, particularly gynaecological issues, while juggling multiple roles and managing work and home situations. Similar to the menstrual cycle, women of reproductive age frequently experience vaginal discharge of white, yellowish and sticky fluid before the start of their periods or during the fertile period, which is quite normal. White discharge is a common organic occurrence that cleans, lubricates, and protects reproductive organs from infection. It often occurs two to three times per day.

Talking with HT Lifestyle, Dr. Mandeep Singh Basu, CEO of Jagat Pharma and Director of Dr. Basu Eye Hospital, says, "Even though Leucorrhea is not a disease, it can nonetheless be a factor in the development of numerous illnesses, including diabetes, anaemia, bacterial infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. Furthermore, treatment for this unusual vaginal fluid discharge should include the right advice and medication. Although there are several ways to address this health issue, Ayurveda is one of the most trustworthy and effective treatments. In fact, our ancient ancestors used to refer to it as "SwetaPradara" (vaginal discharge). According to Ayurveda, there can be two reasons for Leucorrhea bacterial infection and Ushnata (Warmness in the body)."

Dr. Mandeep further suggested a few Ayurvedic remedies to cure abnormal vaginal discharge.

This herb's potent astringent and antibacterial properties aid in balancing the Kaphadosha.

After boiling a bark of the Ashoka plant in one glass of water, you can drink it as tea; or else you can use the boiled water as a vaginal wash.

3. Guduchi (Tinosporacordifolia)

Guduchi is a vital remedy in the Indian system of medicine and is rich in anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties. The stem of the Guduchi plant can be boiled in water and used as a vaginal wash to help maintain a healthy flow of vaginal discharge.
