Vaginal Discharge

Ask the Raffles Medical Group Experts


Is it true that eating ‘cooling’ foods, such as pineapple and cucumber will induce more discharge in females? Can the consumption of ‘cooling’ food cause miscarriages?


Vaginal discharge is sometimes due to hormone changes or mild infections that can be the result of pH (acidity) changes in the vagina. It is quite possible that certain foods alter the pH and thus induce more vaginal discharge. Such mild discharge is harmless. There is no scientific proof that miscarriages are caused by ‘cooling’ foods.
