The issue of vaginal discharge/odour is common among ladies these days and having it can be really embarrassing. At times due to the smell, the odour and the discomfort that comes along with it. When it lingers for so long, it does take away self-confidence of many ladies.
If that describes what you are going through right now, below are some natural home-remedies that can help you treat unwanted vaginal discharges naturally with no side effect.
Okra/Okro/ladies finger (also known as lady’s finger) is beneficial in treating leukorrhea (thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge). Being mucilaginous in nature, okra helps remove mucous from your system, in turn reducing vaginal discharge.
How to use it;
Wash 100g okra/okro and cut them into small pieces.
Boil the okra pieces in half a litre or about two cups of water for 20 minutes until the water is reduced to half.
Take this solution along with some honey three times daily.
Follow this effective remedy until condition improves.
Another very effective way of treating vaginal discharge at home is using Fenugreek seeds.
FENUGREEK (ERU, KIMBA) SEEDS
Called Eru in Yoruba and Kimba in Hausa, fenugreek seeds help improve the pH level in the vagina and are also believed to affect oestrogen levels. Plus, the seeds work as a natural immune booster.
How to use it;
Soak one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. The next morning, strain the water and add one-half teaspoon of honey. Drink it on an empty stomach.
Alternatively, boil two teaspoons of fenugreek seeds in four cups of water for 30 minutes. Strain and allow it to cool. Use this water as a vaginal wash three or four times daily until the symptoms subside.
Garlic is considered to be one of the most powerful natural antibiotics. Its active compounds eliminate hundreds of viruses, bacteria, and fungi that can cause infections.
By consuming garlic every day you eliminate the vaginal odours caused by yeast without altering the pH of the vagina.
