Meaning of Leucorrhea
Leukorrhea or (leucorrhoea British English) is a thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge. There are many causes of leukorrhea, the usual one being estrogen imbalance. The amount of discharge may increase due to vaginal infection or STDs, and also it may disappear and reappear from time to time, this discharge can keep occurring for years in which case it becomes more yellow and foul-smelling; it is usually a non-pathological symptom secondary to inflammatory conditions of vagina or cervix. - See link


Leucorrhea in Spanish is Leucorrea
Aunque el término leucorrea literalmente significa "secreción blanca", el color de la secreción vaginal puede variar dependiendo de la causa, siendo la más común la infección vaginal, pero puede variar desde una secreción lechosa normal en la niña premenárquica, hasta una sanguinolenta causada por un cáncer de vagina o de cérvix. Antes de la menarquia puede existir una secreción vaginal escasa que no causa irritación y no se considera anormal y en la adolescente se presenta una pequeña cantidad de material mucoide blanco en la vagina que es el resultado de la descamación y acumulación de células epiteliales. Se considera anormal cualquier secreción vaginal no transparente y maloliente, que produzca irritación, prurito o manchado de la ropa interior. - See link
