White Creamy Discharge
For most women, discharge is a part of normal life. Discharge typically begins around puberty and continues until a woman reaches menopause. Not only does the amount of discharge a woman experiences vary, but so does the type.
Understanding what causes a white creamy discharge is the first step to figuring out if that is indeed what you’re suffering from.
The vagina typically excretes fluid to cleanse the vaginal canal of bacteria and dirt. This process enables the reproductive tract to stay healthy and prevents further infection from outside sources. The amount of this type of discharge varies throughout your menstrual cycle. It can be light to nonexistent or flowing and quite excessive. It will also be non-odorous and will be either transparent or whitish in color.
Birth control and contraceptives can also cause excessive vaginal discharge.
In some cases, a white creamy discharge is a symptom of candidiasis. Candidiasis is a fungal infection quite common in women of child-bearing age. The condition is caused when your body produces more Candida Albicans, or yeast. It can also occur when your immune system is compromised, if you suffer from diabetes or are pregnant. Poor nutrition and other ailments can also cause this condition as well.
Additional symptoms of candidiasis, besides the white creamy discharge, include:
- • Inflammation around the vulva
- • Itchiness
- • Non-odorous discharge
- • Burning sensation during urination and sex
The creaminess of the discharge caused by an excess production of yeast. Some even refer to it as a cottage cheese like texture, but it can also be milky white to grayish colored discharge. This is a distinct sign that is only associated with this particular condition.
If you’re experiencing a white creamy discharge, then you may want to take action to heal yourself. Self-care can be enough to remedy the situation, so you don’t necessarily have to see a physician to restore your health.
