   (tubes and ovaries). Inflammation can occur as a one (right or left) side and on both (two-sided adnexitis). Chronic adnexitis is the result of untreated or undertreated process and is characterized by morphological and structural changes of appendages. In the chronic stage of inflammation of the pelvic formed infiltrates, mucous and muscular membrane of the fallopian tubes lose their physiological function, the lumen narrowing in the pipe appear sclerotic changes. Long term for the process accompanied by the formation of peritubal periovarialnyh and adhesions.


Causes of chronic adnexitis

Factors that contribute to chronic inflammatory process in appendages:

  • therapeutic abortion Medical abortion - be wary of the ordinary  Medical abortion - be wary of the ordinary
 Complicated by inflammation of the pelvic organs;
  • morbidity childbirth (prolonged labor, prolonged dry period, obstetrical manipulation);
  • pyo-inflammatory diseases in the postpartum and postoperative period;
  • conducting diagnostic curettage of the uterus;
  • wearing an intrauterine device;
  • hypothermia;
  • appendicitis and bowel disease (colitis, cholecystitis).


The clinical picture of chronic adnexitis

There are two forms of acute exacerbations of chronic adnexitis:

  • infectious-toxic - exacerbation of symptoms similar to acute adnexitis characterized by exudative processes in the appendages, abnormal secretion increased, the appearance of blood leukocytosis and accelerated erythrocyte sedimentation rate;
  • neurovegetative - manifested malaise, decreased ability to work, the emergence of neurotic, vascular and endocrine disorders.

The main complaint of patients with chronic pain are adnexitis. Localized pain in the abdomen, aching or dull character, aggravated by hypothermia and exposure to other predisposing factors (stress, SARS, the flu), as well as before and / or during menstruation. Often there reflected the pain: in the lumbar, sacrum and vagina, in the course of the development of pelvic nerves neuralgia. A distinctive feature of the pain is the disparity between its intensity changes in the tubes and ovaries.

About half of the patients had menstrual dysfunction, which appear painful, irregular, scanty or heavy menstrual periods. There may be bleeding in the middle of the menstrual cycle or before menstruation. These disorders are associated with an inflammatory process involving a change of ovarian function. Also, inflammation of the ovaries is accompanied by hypofunction and anovulation, which is one of the causes of infertility in Chronic adnexitis.

One-third of patients with chronic adnexitis say sexual dysfunction. Patients complain of pain during intercourse, decreased or absent sexual desire. The cause of these disorders are organic changes in the uterus, the formation of adhesions, as well as disorders of the central nervous system. The formation of adhesions in the pelvis, near the ovaries and tubes leading to the development of the tube (obstruction of the fallopian tubes) and peritoneal infertility. Chronic adnexitis often accompanied belyami, cervicitis and colpitis.

On palpation appendages during gynecological examinations determined bands tight and painful, kistoznoizmenennye ovaries. Vaginal vault flattened or truncated, the uterus (due to adhesions) limited mobility or stationary. On US determined hydrosalpinx (presence of serous fluid in the pipe) or piosalpinks (presence of pus). During the change of pipes diagnosed hysterosalpingography (crimped, with narrowing of the lumen), or obstruction.
