Hi Anonymous and thanks for bringing your concern to the EmpowHER community.

Likoria, or leukorrhea, is experienced by many women. It is a whitish, yellowish, or greenish vaginal discharge.

Leukorrhea may occur during pregnancy and is considered normal when the discharge is thin, white, and relatively odorless.

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 may be caused by a bacterial or yeast infection. Many sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and chlamydia are major causes of leukorrhea. Leukorrhea can also result from irritation from leaving a diaphragm or tampon in too long.

There are other conditions which can also cause a vaginal discharge. Please see this article for more information.

You may want to consider seeing your doctor to get an exam, diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

Hope that helps,
