Symptoms of ovarian apoplexy and difficulty in diagnosis

Symptoms of ovarian apoplexy usually non-specific, they are easily confused with symptoms of other acute illnesses. Statement of preliminary diagnosis often causes problems, so surgery can be carried out only on the basis of the presence of complexes of symptoms of "acute abdomen." Put a diagnosis alone is impossible: that is why it is so important in time to see a doctor for any pain in the abdominal area.

There are three forms of apoplexy - pain, anemic and mixed. Each of these forms has its differences.

Anemic form is characterized by rupture of the walls of the ovaries, and blood vessels. As a result, there is bleeding into the abdominal cavity - in some cases very abundant. Symptoms typical of internal bleeding: paleness, weakness, dizziness, Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet  Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet
 , Nausea and vomiting, heart palpitations, the appearance of cold sweat. Can appear symptoms of the intrauterine pregnancy.

When the pain the form of bleeding into the abdominal cavity do not happen: bleeding occurs inside the ovary. The pressure of the blood clot irritates the pain receptors, and the main symptom in this case becomes a sharp pain in the lower abdomen. As a rule, a painful form of apoplexy often mistaken for appendicitis Appendicitis - when we must act immediately  Appendicitis - when we must act immediately
 Especially if the affected right ovary.

For mixed forms are characterized by a combination of symptoms of pain and anemic form. Bleeding occurs both inside the ovary, and the abdominal cavity, and pain associated with evidence of internal bleeding.


Methods of Treatment

Treatment of ovarian apoplexy appointed doctor. When the pain the form of apoplexy can avoid surgery. If there are signs of internal bleeding that required emergency surgery. The task of physicians is not only in saving the patient's life, but also in the preservation of reproductive function, so if possible, doctors try to save the ovary. Usually, only the affected part is removed the body that does not affect the functioning of the ovary. Even if you have to remove one ovary entirely - this is not the sentence, was quite enough to give a woman the joy of motherhood. Pregnancy after ovarian apoplexy possible, so you should not be afraid of the operation.

Conservative treatment is only possible if there is no significant flow of blood into the peritoneal cavity.

In this case, the doctor may be limited by the fact that relieves pain, the patient will prescribe complete rest and medical drugs.

If even a small bleeding in the abdominal cavity, doctors usually inclined to surgery. In this case, ovarian apoplexy effects are unlikely to be significant. Conservative treatment does not exclude the likelihood of formation of adhesions, which can further affect the reproductive function of women.

Rupture of ovarian tissue - a serious pathology, which in some cases can lead to death. Therefore, there is no self is unacceptable, and if there is suspicion of internal bleeding, that shows emergency surgery.
