Today obstetricians recommend planning to become pregnant with a preliminary inspection of the spouses before conception. The reason for these recommendations is the existence of genital infections, which have a long asymptomatic and cause numerous complications during pregnancy, both from the mother and from the fetus. These infections include ureaplasmosis
Ureaplasmosis - inflammation of the urogenital system
Features state of pregnancy and ureaplasmosis
Pregnancy is always accompanied by a decrease in immunity. This physiological reaction: immune system is suppressed so that it did not contribute to the removal from the mother alien fetal cells.
That is why it is so dangerous in pregnant women, any chronic infections: their causative agents, which for the time being quietly "sitting" in their places, begin to multiply rapidly and cause worsening of the disease. And since the treatment in the first weeks of pregnancy is not desirable to carry out, the infection can get significant distribution.
Ureaplasmosis - is, as a rule, long flowing infection relapses which coincide with periods of low immunity. Therefore, during pregnancy ureaplasmosis can be activated.
Infertility and ectopic pregnancy with ureaplasmosis
Problems with pregnancy can occur even before its start. The fact that chronic inflammation may induce growth in the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries connective tissue - adhesions that disrupt the permeability of these cavities. Especially dangerous is proliferation of adhesions in the fallopian tubes and ovaries.
The growth of adhesions in the ovaries release an egg prevents their ovaries, so its fertilization can not occur. If fertilization has occurred, the egg cell of the fallopian tube will prevent adhesions
Adhesions - how to get rid of them?
in pipes spanning its lumen. The small dimensions allow the sperm to pass through the "fine sieve" adhesions, and a large egg is stuck there. If the fertilized egg begins to develop in the fallopian tube, then sooner or later the tube is broken - it is accompanied by severe internal bleeding and ends tend to tubal ligation.
Miscarriage in the background ureaplasmosis
The inflammatory process in the mucosa of the uterus can lead to the fact that the fertilized egg can not attach to the wall of the well or will not receive enough oxygen and nutrients due to blood circulation disorders. This leads to miscarriage and abortion.
In the later stages of greater significance is the presence of uterine adhesions: the fetus grows and uterus could not be stretched due to the fact that its adhesion block the cavity. Imperfection circulation in the placenta is thus lagging behind in the development of the fetus and has a negative effect on the brain. All this can lead to premature birth, birth of a premature or small baby, which will be difficult to adapt to the external environment.
Miscarriage - why you lose the most precious thing?
also leads chorioamnionitis - inflammation of the membranes (amnion and chorion), developing an infection in the transition from the uterus to the placenta through the membranes. This often results in miscarriage and premature birth.
Manifestations ureaplasmosis after childbirth
After birth, a woman's body is weakened, the blood vessels of the uterus gape, so infection can spread and cause severe inflammatory processes, such as postpartum endometritis - inflammation of the lining of the uterus.
Status of women at the same time can be very difficult, especially if a ureaplasmosis joins another kind of bacterial infection. The woman has dramatically increased the temperature, there are signs of intoxication, the spread of infection through the blood vessels can lead to sepsis.
Child at ureaplasmosis infected during pregnancy is rare - the fruit is usually well protected from infection. But cases of intrauterine infection is still there. Infection thus penetrate to the fetus from the uterus through the placenta, fetal membranes and amniotic fluid. Thickets infect all the airways, which is manifested in the form of pneumonia
Pneumonia - Symptoms and Causes
. It was quite rare infection enters the bloodstream into the brain, which leads to the development of meningitis. If infection occurs during birth, it affects usually the upper respiratory tract and genitals, often in girls.
Often ureaplasmosis during pregnancy, children are born with low birth weight, lag behind in the physical and psychological development.
Ureaplasmosis during pregnancy has a negative impact on the mother and the fetus. Therefore it is better to identify such diseases being treated prior to conception and during pregnancy planning.
