- Cervicitis - can cause infertility
Treatment of cervicitis
Cervicitis - a common disease of female genital mutilation, which often goes unnoticed. Such a hidden danger for the fact that the infection spreads to other internal sex organs to the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. This extensive infection is difficult to treat and is often the cause of infertility in women
The causes of infertility in women - and the main predisposing factors
. Cervicitis called inflammation of the cervix. Most often, cervicitis occurs when infection with sexually transmitted diseases (gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, and so on). When this infection reaches the endocervix ascending path from the vagina. There is a downward path when the infection enters first into the internal reproductive organs (uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, lymph and blood through the path of the other sources of infection), and then - the mucosa cervical canal.
In such cases, the germs can be staphylococci, streptococci and E. coli, various viruses.
Very often cervicitises arise if there is any illness (or the consequences of injury) of the cervix, such as nezashitye postpartum ruptures of the cervix and perineum, the omission of sexual organs, etc. Predisposes to the development of cervicitis and the use of some contraceptives, which irritate the cervix. Not the last value in the development of any inflammatory diseases and disorders have immunity.
Manifestations of the disease and cervicitis
Cervicitis occurs in acute, subacute and chronic forms. Initially, inflammation begins in the lining of the cervix, and then penetrates the tissue.
The manifestations of cervicitis is never too pronounced that even in acute during a woman appear a slight pain in the lower abdomen, accompanied by a slight itching and discharge. On examination, at this moment can reveal redness and swelling of the mucous membrane of the cervix.
In subacute symptoms of the disease process more smooth, and the process is chronic and completely unnoticed, concerned only minor muco-purulent discharge.
If chronic cervicitis is prolonged, the cervix becomes thickened in the area of the cervical canal on the mucous membrane under the influence of inflammatory secretions appear superficial coating tissue disorders (erosion). In the future, the erosion becomes infected, which promotes continuous flow process. Most often, the erosion appears in the output from the cervical canal
Cervical canal - the path traversed by every person
(Zaw outer cervix), it is a red spot of irregular shape, from which the blood is released when touched. No complaints from women does not cause erosion and can be detected only gynecologist at the next inspection.
Another complication may be the spread of the inflammatory process up to the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries, which may deprive women of the opportunity to have children.
How to treat cervicitis
Diagnosis is based on examination of the gynecologist and confirmed by laboratory and endoscopic (study of the state of the inner shells of) research.
Laboratory investigated discharge from the cervix. When viewed under a microscope investigated smear, which are clearly visible signs of inflammation (eg, white blood cells, which are always present in inflammatory processes). Crop nutrient discharges to the environment identifies the infectious agent and its sensitivity to antibiotics.
Endoscopic studies are as a colposcopy (the study of the mucous membrane of the vaginal part of the cervix using a special device colposcope).
Treatment for cervicitis carried out only after a complete examination and the establishment of an accurate diagnosis.
In acute disease course after it is identified the causative agent is assigned antibiotic therapy followed by laboratory control. At the same time treatment is prescribed, enhances immunity
Strengthening the immune system - help the immune system
: Vitamin-mineral complexes, tempering procedures, proper nutrition
Proper nutrition - the basic precepts of healthy food
and so on. If necessary, appointed by the immune-boosting drugs (after a special blood test - immunogram).
Locally appointed douche with a weak disinfectant solution: potassium permanganate, boric acid, herbal extracts. If cervicitis is a viral nature, then appointed irrigation with interferon or rectal suppositories with viferonom.
In chronic cervicitis treatment is prescribed, strengthens the immune system and local treatment in the form of physiotherapy, for example, electrophoresis of drugs by an electrode inserted into the vagina.
Prevention cervicitis is properly administered by birth, timely restoring the integrity of the cervix (suturing at break), rejection of abortion, the right (on the recommendation of the gynecologist) selection of contraceptive methods and the observance of hygiene rules.
