A community based cross-sectional study was conducted in reproductive age group women in an urban community of Nagpur, to assess the prevalence of leucorrhoea & the factors influencing the same in these women. The study participants included 506 females, out of which 149 were unmarried & 357 were married. Detailed history & clinical examination was done in all the females including gynecological examination in all the married females. Leucorrhoea was present in 139(27.47%) females. Leucorrhoea was found significantly more in married females as compared to unmarried (p<0.001), pregnant as compared to non-pregnant (OR=2.10,95% C.I.=1.02-4.32), & women of lower socioeconomic status (p<0.001), women with high parity (p<0.001).
