|Natural Remedies for White Vaginal Discharge (Leucorrhea)
Leucorrhoea, commonly known as whites, refers to a whitish discharge from the female genitals. It is an abnormal disease

damage of the cervix during delivery of the baby. The other common causes of leucorrhoea are displacement of the womb and
