1. Fenugreek seeds
Fenugreek is well-known as a cure for digestive and stomach issues but lesser known are its healing effects on urinary problems.
It is an effective remedy for leucorrhea mainly because it contains zinc. In addition to the relief it provides from irritation, pain, and swelling, fenugreek has a soothing effect on the mucous membranes and skin.
Boil three teaspoons of fenugreek seeds in about one liter of water for 30 minutes. Strain the concoction and allow it to cool.
Finally, drink. You can also use it as a vaginal wash for 3 to 4 times a day.
2. Coriander seeds
Leave 5 to 10 grams of coriander seeds soaked in a glass of water overnight. Strain the water. In the morning, drink it on an empty stomach. Do so for 7 to 10 days.
3. Apple cider vinegar
The bad smell associated with leucorrhea results from increased acidity. Apple cider vinegar assists with restoring the body’s natural pH and also decreasing any acidity existing in the vaginal flora.
It is also a beneficial remedy for a number of other female problems.
Mix a glass of apple cider vinegar with water and use it as a vaginal wash a minimum of two times a day.
If the vinegar is unfiltered and raw, mix it with distilled water to prepare the vaginal wash.
For internal intake, mix one part of apple cider vinegar with a glass of water. Drink daily to end the problem.
