Hi, : Hi, leukorrhea is cloudy, white or slightly yellow vaginal discharge that is normal in females that have undergone puberty. The thickness or amounts can change at different times (like when a female ovulates or gets pregnant). There can be more if estrogen is out of balance (which can happen when a girl is just starting to get periods).

If you have darker colored discharge, it is thick (like cottage cheese) and it has a bad odor, that can be signs of an infection, especially if there are symptoms like vaginal redness, burning, itchiness or pain with urination. ...Read more

Personal choice: Come to think of it, I don't believe that I've ever seen anyone's armpit hair in my office. Many people in the U.S. Tend to keep their armpit hair hidden from public view much of the time. I believe that it's up to the individual whether to reveal armpit hair or not.
