Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. Whitish discharge from the vagina is suggestive of pelvic infection and this is one of the leading causes for female infertility. it is best to get this checked from a gynecologist and have the discharge evaluated as it can be due to various causes & organisms. Fortunately there are effective treatments available for these discharges and the symptoms improve dramatically after treatment.
Sometimes these infections can block the tubes and that can lead to infertility. The gynecologist might order a few tests to check for that as well.
Hoping for the best. Please feel free to clarify any other query.

Is there any treatment can be done at home? Or what steps or precaution should be taken at the time of intercourse?

Dear Ma'am,

For simple infections clotrimazole cream and metrogyl tablets are there but because your infection has been persisting for so long and leading to infertility, it is better that you have it evaluated by a gynecologist.
Sometimes the carrier of the infection is the male partner, therefore it is better that both of you undergo treatment.

Please feel free to clarify any other query.
