How to judge women's health from the condition of leucorrhea? After entering puberty, women's lower body will always be wet. Their underwear will no longer be clean. It is either transparent and colorless secretion or milky white secretion like cheese. Sometimes it is slightly yellow, blood and brown. Although there is no smell at ordinary times, it smells bad if they don't wash their vulva and change their underwear every other day or two. This is the effect of a large amount of estrogen secreted after ovarian development, which is called leucorrhea in medicine.
Composition of leucorrhea: secretion of vaginal epithelium, which is the main material to keep the vagina moist; The secretion of cervical gland and endometrium is small, and its nature changes with different stages of menstrual cycle; Exfoliated cells and leukocytes of vaginal epithelium; Secretions from the sebaceous glands of the labia minora; Secretion of vestibular gland, etc.
Secretion of leucorrhea: Generally speaking, leucorrhea is tasteless and small. It changes because people are at different stages of the menstrual cycle. For example, the secretion of glandular cells in the cervical intima during ovulation is strong, so the leucorrhea increases, which is very similar to the thin and transparent egg white. When pulling the cervical mucus with two fingers, it can be elongated to a few centimeters, and the elasticity is quite good. If it is in the second half of the menstrual period, this phenomenon can not be observed. 2-3 days before and after menstruation, due to pelvic congestion, increased vaginal secretions, more leucorrhea, sometimes a little blood color, and a little brown when the corpus luteum function is insufficient.
When women have sex after marriage (including premarital sexual fantasy, sexual masturbation and sexual impulse), they will lead to pelvic congestion due to sexual excitement, and then a large increase in vaginal secretion and leucorrhea. The longer the stimulation time, the stronger the stimulation, and the more secretions. These are normal physiological phenomena and physiological reactions.
However, although some women pay great attention to cleanliness, they have a lot of leucorrhea; The smell is very strong and makes people cover their noses; Or obvious changes in the color and nature of leucorrhea indicate an abnormal situation. In these cases, married women first consider issues related to sexual activities.
Abnormal leucorrhea: it is usually the manifestation of reproductive tract inflammation. Married women have a general increase in the chance of infection, which has a great relationship with their regular sexual life. The man did not wash his hands when caressing with his hands, and his nails were too long to hide dirt; Before rooming, both parties or one party did not pay attention to cleaning the lower body, especially the man's poor hygiene habits; Men suffering from phimosis or redundant prepuce, and being lazy to urinate and clean after having the same room are important reasons for abnormal leucorrhea in women. What about abnormal leucorrhea color?
Through the color, smell and nature of leucorrhea, we can preliminarily judge the pathogenic type:
In purulent bacterial infection, leucorrhea is purulent, yellow or yellowish green, viscous purulent, and has a bad smell, such as senile vaginitis, endometritis, uterine empyema, gonococcal vaginitis and non gonococcal vaginitis (Chlamydia infection).
In case of fungal infection, leucorrhea is bean curd residue, accompanied by obvious vulvar pruritus, such as Candida infection.
Trichomonas infection, leucorrhea is milky white foam, vaginal itching.
However, the abnormal performance of leucorrhea is not so typical as above. Moreover, mixed infection often occurs. Therefore, it is impossible to make a clear diagnosis only by simple appearance judgment. It is best to go to gynecology for routine examination in order to get a clear diagnosis and timely treatment. Especially when both parties or one party has a history of unclean sexual intercourse, they should actively seek medical treatment. It is best to go to the dermatology department to avoid misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis.
At present, the medical community has corresponding effective drugs for bacterial (including gonococcal), fungal and trichomonal vaginal infections. Therefore, after identifying the causes, we can get highly targeted and effective treatment. Patients with leucorrhea and blood, especially older or postmenopausal patients, should be vigilant and seek medical treatment as soon as possible, so as not to delay the diagnosis and treatment of tumors.
In addition, it should also be pointed out that couples with gonorrhea or trichomoniasis must be treated together. Otherwise, if the woman is treated only, the man is still infected with bacteria or pathogenic microorganisms, and the woman will be reinfected through sexual life after she is cured.
The principle of prevention over treatment remains valid here
In order to protect women's physical and mental health, both men and women should pay attention to sexual hygiene, especially husbands. They must develop good hygiene habits. Two important things that must be done are:
(1) The man should wash his lower body every day and pay more attention to cleaning the parts that may have sexual contact before going to the same room.
(2) Phimosis patients should perform circumcision as early as possible. Although those with long prepuce do not have to do this operation, they should at least turn up the prepuce and clean it well before going to the same room.
In addition to washing before the same room, the woman should urinate and wash her lower body again after the same room. At ordinary times, we should also pay attention to the separation of towels and basins for washing and foot towels and foot basins. Try to use the squatting toilet. When you have to use the sitting toilet, you should also pad toilet paper, wipe the toilet paper from front to back, wash and change the menstrual belt frequently, and don't be stingy with sanitary napkins, which can prevent the occurrence of abnormal leucorrhea.
