   often used hydrogen peroxide.

The solution of hydrogen peroxide is present in almost every home medicine cabinet, moreover, it is characterized by low cost and availability.

Although douching with hydrogen peroxide is used less frequently in gynecological practice, official medicine does not negate the effectiveness of the method.


Hydrogen peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide (hydrogen peroxide, the chemical formula H2O2) is the simplest representative perekosidov and is a colorless liquid with a "metallic" taste and a faint odor of ozone .  Hydrogen peroxide is readily soluble in water, alcohol and ether .  Hydrogen peroxide is synthesized in the body and plays a protective role as a bactericidal agent .  During decomposition of hydrogen peroxide in the body of water is formed and the atomic oxygen .  The oxygen atoms are not only normalize the biochemical reactions and energy, but also restores the cells, removing them from harmful substances by their oxidation .  Because of the release of active oxygen and oxidative reactions occur after meeting the organic particles, the latter are destroyed .  Based on this antiseptic action of hydrogen peroxide .  That is, after the treatment of the skin and mucous membranes peroxide solution is a destruction of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites .  Moreover, the processing occurs in a strong foaming which contributes to particulate mechanical removal of necrotic tissue, pus, blood .  Among others, hydrogen peroxide has hemostatic (hemostatic properties) .

The drug is available in solution (concentrated and diluted). The concentrated solution of ten percent is used topically, mainly for washing wounds. And as a local hemostatic agent. Divorced (usually a three-percent solution) is used in gynecology for douches, in the treatment of angina, stomatitis, nasal lavage. In the treatment of wound surface with hydrogen peroxide can cause burning or allergic reactions.


Douching with hydrogen peroxide

Some women douching abuse, including hydrogen peroxide solution. We know that the vagina performs protective functions and produce mucus, which, together with the outside face "additional elements". Normally, the vagina contains lactobacilli (Doderlein coli) that produce hydrogen peroxide and provide an acidic environment is not suitable for pathological microorganisms.

When shifting the pH to the alkaline side developing dysbiosis vagina Dysbacteriosis vagina - how to fight?  Dysbacteriosis vagina - how to fight?
   resulting in a sharp decrease of lactic acid bacteria. Dysbacteriosis creates a breeding ground for infection and the occurrence of vaginitis Colpitis - take a lot of trouble  Colpitis - take a lot of trouble

Three-percent hydrogen peroxide in combination with drugs containing lactobacilli and bifidobacteria restores the normal microflora of the vagina The microflora of the vagina: purity  The microflora of the vagina: purity


How to douche with hydrogen peroxide

For vaginal irrigation, use only boiled water. The water should be warm (ideal temperature - it is 37-38 degrees). Then the prepared one percent solution of hydrogen peroxide (100 mL of three percent solution was mixed with 300 ml of water). It is possible to prepare a solution, and a weaker concentration. To do this in one liter of water add two tablespoons of three percent hydrogen peroxide.

Douching is carried out in a bathtub or lying on bed with spread legs. The filled syringe ready solution, after which it tip inserted into the vagina. Upon compression of the syringe into the vagina liquid jet flows. Duration manipulations is 10-15 minutes. First douching performed twice a day, then the improvement of the every other day, and, finally, one - two times a week. The course of treatment consists of seven to ten treatments.

Fibroids of the uterus - the most common form of the disease

May 28, 2013

 uterine fibroids
 Fibroids can be diffuse or nodular. Diffuse (extending to vast areas of the uterus) fibroids are less common than node. In most cases, when people talk about uterine fibroids mean her anchor shape. Uterine fibroids - a term that is often used in ultrasound findings when described intramural, and submucous fibroids subserous nodes.

 Fibroids of the uterus - the most common form of the disease

What are uterine fibroids

Uterine fibroids - a benign tumor of the middle muscular layer of the uterus in the form of one or more nodes. This is the most common form of the disease. Sometimes there are also diffuse (spread) and diffuse nodular form (on the background of diffuse fibroids are fibroids).

Fibroids may be located deep in the muscle layer of the uterus (intramural nodes) to grow deep into the muscle layer of the uterus (submucous nodes), or, on the contrary, out in the pelvic area (subserous nodes).

 Fibroids of the uterus - the most common form of the disease

Nodal subserous uterine fibroids

Uterine fibroids, which is a node located under the outer serous membrane of the body, called subserous. The term "node" is rarely featured in the diagnosis of the disease, it is more characteristic of the ultrasound findings.

Fibroids under the serous membrane can be placed on a thick short or long thin stalk. The last danger as long thin legs may be twisted, resulting in necrosis of the tumor and the development of peritonitis. Fibroids broad short stalk may grow in size and compress the surrounding organs.

Subserous nodes can not disturb a woman for a long time, as long as it will cause complications.

Thus, the major components on the front wall of the uterus can compress the bladder Urinary bladder - structure and function  Urinary bladder - structure and function
   and ureter, causing urinary disorders, pyelonephritis and renal dysfunction. If a large myoma node is located on the rear wall of the uterus, it can cause a compression of the rectum, the development of constipation, hemorrhoids Hemorrhoids - a shameful disease  Hemorrhoids - a shameful disease
 , Infectious and inflammatory processes in the rectal area.

Torsion feet subserous node causes severe pain and requires immediate surgical care to women.

Nodal submucosal fibroids

For this type of nodes located under the inner lining of the uterus characterized by heavy menstrual bleeding and uterine vnemenstrualnye Uterine bleeding outside of menstruation - a sign of a serious breach  Uterine bleeding outside of menstruation - a sign of a serious breach
 , Pain, and iron deficiency anemia.

Bleeding is systematic and lead to chronic blood loss, which end the development of iron deficiency anemia. Symptoms of iron deficiency anemia are paleness, weakness, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, decreased performance and quality of life, frequent fainting.

Pain in the presence of submucous nodes can be constant aching in nature and located in the lower abdomen or lower back. Before menstruation, they are usually replaced by acute paroxysmal pain.

Nodal intramural (interstitial) fibroids

Nodes in the back of the muscular layer of the uterus called intramural or interstitial. This is the most common form of uterine fibroids, it is found in half of cases women. This intramural node can increase inside the uterus or outward.

A sign of intramural nodes are menstrual disorders and pain, symptoms similar to submucous nodes. Also developing iron deficiency anemia.

What if found fibroids in the uterine wall

We need a complete examination (pelvic ultrasound, ultrasound vaginal probe, diagnostic hysteroscopy Hysteroscopy - examination of the uterus inside  Hysteroscopy - examination of the uterus inside
 If necessary X-ray studies, CT and magnetic resonance imaging) and the treatment prescribed by the doctor.

Treating fibroids depends on the woman's age and her desire to have children, the location of the nodes, the degree of development of complications of the disease and so on.

For small subserous nodes on a wide leg may be appointed conservative hormonal therapy, after which the unit will cease to grow and even decreased in volume.

Submucous nodes required to be removed, as they give a lot of complications. Operation delete a node called myomectomy. Too large nodes (larger than 12 weeks gestation) is removed after the pre-treatment of the hormone, which helps to reduce their volume. Women older units fibroids are removed along with the uterus (hysterectomy).

In some cases, small intramural and submucous myoma nodes operations are performed embolization of uterine arteries, resulting in tumor shrinks and is no longer increasing.
