January 23, 2013

 ureaplasma symptoms
 The disease, which is caused by ureaplasma called ureaplasmosis or ureaplasma infection. The pathogen enters the cells of the mucous membranes of urogenital organs of men and women, causing long flowing and often asymptomatic disease. Signs of the disease are often its complications.

 Ureaplasma - symptoms of the disease, which causes the organism

Ureaplasma - what is it

Ureaplasma - this is a very small bacterium that belongs to the family of mycoplasma. A special feature is the absence of full ureaplasmas membrane. This allows ureaplasmas freely pass through the cell membrane and to settle there for a long time - ureaplasmas cells provide all the necessary nutrition. There are two ureaplasmas - urealitikum Ureaplasma parvum and Ureaplasma Ureaplasma parvum - intracellular parasite  Ureaplasma parvum - intracellular parasite

Ureaplasmas peculiarity is the fact that it is using the allocated enzyme cleaves uric acid to ammonia. It promotes the formation of complications from kidney and urinary tract as well as ammonia irritates the mucous membrane of them.

Dispatched ureaplasma This insidious ureaplasma - often too late  This insidious ureaplasma - often too late
   mainly through sexual contact, but can be passed from mother to child through the membranes and the passage of the baby through the birth canal during delivery.

Carriage ureaplasmas

Typically, carrier ureaplasmas asymptomatic in women and men. But sometimes the cause of ureaplasma dysbiosis vagina Dysbacteriosis vagina - how to fight?  Dysbacteriosis vagina - how to fight?
   - Increase of opportunistic and pathogenic microflora in the vagina. This suppressed vital functions of normal microflora, which is represented mainly lactobacilli. Very often vaginal dysbacteriosis (bacterial vaginosis) develops when simultaneously Ureaplasma expands and some other type of opportunistic bacteria such gardnerellas.

Dysbacteriosis - it is not a disease, and predbolezn that has many chances to go in the inflammatory process - is only reduced immunity. But bacterial growth is manifested in the form of the appearance of heavy discharge with an unpleasant fishy odor. Bacterial vaginosis is definitely a need to identify and treat.

Symptoms of inflammatory diseases of the urinary organs of women, caused by ureaplasma

The inflammatory process caused by ureaplasma called ureaplasmosis. In most cases ureaplasmosis Ureaplasmosis - inflammation of the urogenital system  Ureaplasmosis - inflammation of the urogenital system
   It has blurred over, the symptoms of which can easily be overlooked. Especially characteristic is unnoticeable for the inflammatory process for women. A woman may be ill ureaplasmosis years, which appears only in the course of examination for infertility.

It starts a process of inflammation of the walls of the vagina and the cervical canal (vaginitis and cervicitis). The woman can appear transparent allocation and minor discomfort to go away without treatment. There may be frequent and painful urination - a sign that the inflammation has affected the bladder. Or maybe not at all nor any signs of the disease, it also happens.

However, the inflammatory process subsides, then it starts again and starts moving upward, spreading to internal genital organs of women - uterus and its appendages (fallopian tubes and ovaries). This occasionally can appear minor abdominal pain, isolation (both transparent and mucopurulent - a sign of joining other bacterial infections). Most such aggravation develop after menstruation, which causes worsening of any chronic processes in the genitals and are accompanied by a slight rise in temperature, general malaise, weakness.

Against the backdrop of long flowing inflammatory process in the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries grows connective tissue - adhesions, which are the cause of infertility.

Symptoms of inflammatory diseases of the urinary organs of men caused by ureaplasma

In men, Ureaplasma causes the disease, which is also, as in women, goes unnoticed. But men ureaplasmosis symptoms, though small, but still there. Initially, these are signs of defeat of the urethra (urethritis) - frequent painful urination and clear discharge from the urethra in the morning. But sometimes (quite rare) is an acute onset of the disease, with fever, severe disorders of urination and discharge, accompanied by burning and itching.

All these symptoms pass quickly without treatment. However, the infection remains and at any moment can come back to haunt or spread to the internal genital organs, most often on the prostate and epididymis. Signs of internal organs are a pain in the perineum, lower abdomen, in the testicle, fever (sometimes it can not rise, while in other cases increased significantly). Reduced sexual function and can develop infertility.

Ureaplasmosis easily treatable in the early stages of the disease, so for suspected inflammatory process in the field of urinary organs should consult a doctor.
