What are the causes of white discharge in women?

Normally, there is a small amount of fluid discharge that takes place from the female reproductive tract. During menstruation, the discharge will be heavier. However, when the woman experiences a whitish discharge when she isn’t menstruating, there may be an issue. There are some common causes of white discharge in women which can be treated simply. The most common causes of this problem include bacterial and fungal infections in the genital area of the person. One may pick up these infections because of environmental factors and because of factors that affect one’s own personal health such as changes in the hormone balance and body chemistry.

Infections are classified as abnormal reasons for discharge in women, different from reasons such as menstruation. Women who have this problem should thoroughly clean their genital area and also make sure that it is properly dry. Treatment for such a problem is something that should be left to the judgment of a doctor. It is not recommended to self medicate, as sometimes there could be some more serious underlying problem. Sexual activity must not take place during this time as this could lead to the spread of infection from the infected woman to her partner.
