The Signs and Causes of White Discharge in Women, and Its Difference from the Menses

  • François Du Port


The bleeding that the passage of the menses excites from the uterus, or from its lining, is coloured red or purple: but the flux, when it is foul matter, is irregular and pale, or yellow, though mixed with blood, and corrodes the part it flows through to create an ulcer whose odour offends the nostrils. And sometimes it is like whey, or issues from the uterus white as cream. An abundance of thin blood and patent vessels promote the red menses: but poor condition and an evil humour, in uterus and viscera, cause this flux.
