Uncontrolled discharge of a white or sometimes yellowish, sticky, foul-smelling material from the vagina is called Leucorrhoea. In Ayurvedic history, Leucorrhoea is known as Shveta padaratha, where Shveta means ‘white color’, & Padaratha means ‘discharge of fluid’, generally known as whitish or yellowish discharge from female genitals. White discharge is normal sometimes because it shows change in hormones. Normally it occurs before girl’s first period, & hence considered as sign of puberty.
