Vaginal discharge and betel leaf decoction.


Leucorrhoea is an excessive discharge from the vagina other than menstrual blood. This vaginal discharge is a common complaint among women in the world, especially in Indonesia. Research data on women's reproductive health shows that 75% of women in the world must suffer from vaginal discharge at least once in their lifetime and 45% of them can experience it twice or more. Non-pharmacological therapy is considered more effective because it does not cause side effects. One of them is by giving boiled betel leaf water. The purpose of this study was to determine the Effectiveness of Betel Leaf Decoction in Reducing Leucorrhoea in Al Insyirah Pekanbaru School Students. This type of research was quantitative with a Quasi-Experimental research design with one group pretest-posttest research design with a total of 36 respondents where samples were taken by total sampling. The analytical test used was univariate and bivariate analysis with paired T-test which showed a value of p = 0.002 <0.05, meaning that giving betel leaf decoction was effective in reducing leucorrhoea. Researchers suggest that the results of this study can be an alternative non-pharmacological therapy to reduce vaginal discharge.
