Vaginal discharges are often a sign of vaginal yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, or sexually transmitted diseases. Leukorrhea may or may not indicate the presence of infection, and it is not usually accompanied by other signs and symptoms, such as itching, pain, burning or irritation, or redness, of the tissue. Only a qualified health professional can tell you whether you have an infection.
If you have any unusual type of vaginal discharge during pregnancy or at any other time, always consult your health professional before trying any over-the-counter treatments or home remedies.
