An Outline on Shweta pradara and An observational study on its clinical presentation
Leucorrhoea is one of the commonest complaints among women of reproductive age group. An increase in the normal vaginal secretion develops physiologically at puberty, at ovulation, premenstrual phase and during pregnancy. Excessive discharge causes irritation and itching in the genitalia. Ayurveda explains this condition as Shwetha pradara. Though it is not a separate disease, clinically it has great relevance. This paper is an attempt to outline the details of Shwetha pradara as described in the classics and to illustrate its clinical presentation in 50 patients as an observational study.
