Abnormal Leucorrhea-Signal of Vaginitis
Leucorrhea is a kind of secretion discharged from women’s vagina. It is a combination of mucus secretions in the cervix, exfoliated epithelial cells, normal vaginal flora and vaginal leakage.

The above situation may be caused by vaginitis.
High Risk Factors Causing Vaginitis
Under normal circumstances, various microorganisms in the vagina restrict each other and coexist harmoniously, making the vaginal environment in a balanced state. Once this balance is broken, germs will take the opportunity to invade and cause vaginitis.
The first type of high-risk factors (will break the vaginal balance):
Some friends like to use vaginal lotion, always feel that [washing is healthier], this idea is actually wrong. Under normal circumstances, clean the vagina with clear water is OK, unless there is a need for treatment, only under the guidance of the doctor to use lotion. Inappropriate vaginal medication or vaginal flushing will break the original flora balance of the vagina and cause vaginitis.
The second type of high-risk factors (which may bring bacteria):
When wiping after urination, gently press and suck clean urine. After defecation, the anus should be wiped from front to back. If the direction is not correct, it is possible to bring bacteria in feces to vulva and vagina. Many bacteria and microorganisms will spread through sexual life. Failure to pay attention to sexual hygiene or having multiple sexual partners will increase the risk of infection.
The third type of high-risk factors (providing breeding space for bacteria):
Menstrual use tampons, sanitary napkins do not change in time, will provide a good reproduction space for inducing vaginitis bacteria. Similarly, often wear tight pants, chemical fiber underpants are also easy to make women’s private parts impermeable to induce vaginitis.

Body resistance is poor, or postmenopausal estrogen level decline is also easy to induce vaginitis. Under the action of these high-risk factors, the vaginal environment [messy], vaginitis also come to you. Pay attention to daily care and exercise, try to avoid these high-risk factors, can effectively prevent vaginitis.
