 Bend the uterus and conception: features and hazards

The position of the uterus

In the pelvis the uterus is suspended on cords that extend to the pelvic wall. Normally, the skein is located in a small basin, at an equal distance from both walls of the pelvis. The bottom of the uterus "looks" up and anteriorly, and the vaginal portion of the cervix is ​​facing downwards and backwards (to the back wall of the vagina). In such a position between the body and cervix forms an obtuse angle, which faces anteriorly called anteflexio - antefleksio. This is the normal arrangement of the uterus. Due to certain factors or individual anatomical features, the angle can be turned backwards, as they say retroflexio - retroflection or bending of the uterus. Bending of the uterus may also be in the right or left side or in the form of a torsion uterus.

The clinical picture of a bend of the uterus

Symptoms of uterine bend manifest in the case of over-expression of the disease or the symptoms that led to it (inflammation, tumor). Patients complain of painful menstruation (womb "kinked" that prevents normal outflow of blood and pieces of the endometrium), irregular menstrual cycle, pain during intercourse, urinary disorders. Menstruation becomes heavy and prolonged. During the ensuing threat of termination of pregnancy is possible or even miscarriage. When vaginal examination, the doctor identifies the position and mobility of the uterus, it is trying to shift in different directions. If the uterus does not move (fixed), there is a pain as it moves, it points to the adhesive process in the pelvis Adhesions in the pelvis: Symptoms and Treatment  Adhesions in the pelvis: Symptoms and Treatment

Features of conception at the bend of the uterus

If the bend is not so strongly expressed, and is individual anatomical features of the body, then there is no problem conceiving. When excessively pronounced bending of the uterus creates a mechanical barrier penetration of sperm into the uterus due to its inflection. After intercourse, the ejaculate is collected in the posterior vaginal fornix, which aims to position the uterus antefleksio. When you bend the cervix of the uterus it rests on the front wall of the vagina and has no direct contact with the sperm, which can prevent penetration of sperm into the uterus. In addition, with the expressed adhesive process that led to the bend of the uterus, as already noted, possible obstruction or narrowing of the pipe, which also prevents the egg and sperm meeting.

The mechanism of action of Zoladex

The active ingredient of the drug is goserelin acetate (Zoladex contains 3, 6 mg goserelin). The drug is available in a set with an applicator syringe for subcutaneous administration.

Zoladex (Goserelin or) is a synthetic analogue of the natural LHRH (gonadotropin-releasing hormone). With the constant use of the drug suppresses the release of anterior pituitary luteinizing hormone by blocking the receptors in it. As a result, dramatically reduces the formation of ovarian hormones, particularly oestradiol level (it is known that one cause of endometriosis is the high content of estrogen in the blood). The level of female sex hormones in the blood falls to postmenopausal, that is to create an artificial menopause. The concentration of estrogen continues to be reduced under continuous treatment. Consequently, the patients developed a positive response endometriosis.

Zoladex is synthesized as a depot releasing hormones agonists, so its introduction is carried out once every four weeks. The drug causes thinning of the endometrium, which leads to the development of amenorrhea The absence of menstruation (amenorrhea) - ambiguous symptom  The absence of menstruation (amenorrhea) - ambiguous symptom
   and suppresses the growth of endometrioid heterotopias. As a rule, Zoladex administered in combination with iron supplementation, which causes improvement in hemoglobin and red blood cell count (endometriosis is often accompanied by the development of chronic post-hemorrhagic anemia). In rare cases, treatment WG analogues of LH (particularly Zoladex) give rise to menopause, which does not disappear (menstrual cycle is not restored) after the end of therapy.

The drug has an almost complete bioavailability, and its use is in compliance with the recommendations on dosing provides pronounced effect goserelin no clinically significant accumulation in the body. Zoladex practically does not bind to plasma proteins, and its half-life period of two to four hours.
