Summary
What secrets white discharge in women?
Women generally experience mucous white discharge often called Leukorrhea. There is physiological as well as pathological leukorrhea.

I want to know what secrets or where this secretion comes from? Is it from the vagina itself or does it come from the uterus or some other place? Is there any special gland that secrets this?

And what are the contents of such discharge?

Thank you. I had already referred through it. Actually, I had expected more light on this.

Anyhow, thanks once again.
All the details are in the link, the glands involved, cells and type and amount of bacteria.
