Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

Likora or leukorrhea, which is the medical term, is a thick, whitish vaginal discharge.

It may be normal or may be a sign of infection.

It originates from the vagina, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or, most commonly, the cervix. Leukorrhea may occur during pregnancy and is considered normal when the discharge is thin, white, and relatively odorless.

Physiologic leukorrhea is a normal condition occurring within several months to a year of the onset of menses in adolescent girls and is sometimes present in newborn girls, usually lasting one to two months.

However, in many cases, leukorrhea is a sign of infection, especially when the discharge is yellow or green, has an offensive odor, and is accompanied by irritation, itching, pain, or tissue inflammation. It's usually not dangerous but it's a good idea to for your fiancee to see a doctor.
