Leucorrhoea is strictly defined as an excessive normal vaginal discharge.
Normal vaginal secretion is dependent on the endogenous estrogen level. With the rising of the estrogen level, there is abundant secretary activity of the endocervical glands and the superficial vaginal epithelium becomes rich in glycogen. The glycogen loaded epithelium sheds.

The normal secretion is expected to increase in conditions when the estrogen levels become high. Such as,
pregnancy where there is hyperoestrinism with increased vascularity. This leads to increased vaginal transudation and cervical gland secretion.
