Treatment of cervical erosion in births: methods
Treatment of erosion in nonparty is a problem for the doctor and patient. To determine the treatment strategy, you need to know the nature of the occurrence of this disease. Do not delay treatment and postpone indefinitely. This disease is almost asymptomatic, but the consequences to which it can lead can be dire.
Is erosion a disease?
Cervical erosion - no flat epithelium on the surface of the cervix. That is, the normal tissue around the cervical canal is replaced by an inflamed mucosa, which is similar in composition to the mucosa inside the cervical canal. These lesions are red and granular when viewed under magnification.If you are diagnosed with "congenital erosion" (which is extremely rare), then this is an ideal option. In this case, the epithelium is replaced by cells that are similar in composition to the cells of the vagina. Hormonal disruptions in the process of sexual formation are the main cause of the disease when a diagnosis of cervical erosion is made.Treatment from birthless (the reasons are obvious) is not required. Defect mucous disappears after childbirth independently after a few weeks.
But the most common is pseudo-erosion or false cervical erosion in an unborn girl. Treatment in this case is mandatory. It cannot be cured on its own; therefore, gynecologist's intervention is required. If you ignore the advice of a doctor, the consequences can be very dire.
The exact cause of the defect in the cervical mucosa is unknown. However, there are a number of reasons that lead to this disease. Erosion can be caused by:
• trauma (intercourse, incorrect insertion of a tampon, foreign objects into the vagina, abortions, childbirth, injuries during sex);
• infection (herpes, syphilis, tampons that were not removed on time, severe vaginal infections);
• exposure to chemicals (contraceptive creams or ointments, shower gel or foam).There is an increased risk associated with the vaginal use of chemical agents or the presence of multiple sexual partners. However, in most cases, this condition is observed in women without the above risk factors.
Early sex life adversely affects the mucous membranes.And in conditions of weakened immunity, the aggressiveness of infections leads to many diseases. Treatment of cervical erosion in births should begin with finding out the cause of this condition.
Any disease is manifested by pains that cause us to consult a doctor. Erosion is often painless. Since the pain symptom accompanies many diseases, this disease is difficult to diagnose by symptoms. Erosion is diagnosed only when examined by a gynecologist. But you need to know the symptoms of the disease. After all, their appearance will alert and accelerate the visit to the gynecologist.
Any bleeding, especially after sexual intercourse, is the main symptom of erosion. Such secretions sometimes accompany the threat of termination of pregnancy or a precancerous condition; therefore, a doctor needs to be examined. Most women with erosion, do not experience any pain, but sometimes there is discomfort in the lower abdomen, associated with or not associated with sexual intercourse, abundant leucorrhea. These symptoms can also be attributed to failure of the menstrual cycle.
Once again, I would like to emphasize the need to visit the gynecologist if any of the above symptoms appear.And do not be afraid: everything that is diagnosed at an early stage is treated! Treatment of cervical erosion in nonpartum women is easier and faster if you contact the antenatal clinic in time.
Treat or not treat
The most dangerous complication of erosion is its degeneration into a cancerous process. In addition, improper or independent treatment ultimately ends with a rebirth into other diseases that need to be treated for a long time and expensively.
In the case of congenital erosion, childbirth is the primary method for healing, since the cervical tissue is renewed.
In other cases, various methods of treatment of cervical erosion in non-deliveries are used.
Variety of methods
As already indicated, the physician must verify the nature of erosion. Therefore, some research is required. Treatment of cervical erosion in births is prescribed after testing for syphilis, HIV, obtaining results of smear tests for flora and cytology, colposcopy, biopsy, and sometimes the detection of viruses and bacteria by PCR and bacposa. At the same time, the cause of a disease such as cervical erosion is determined.Treatment from nasorozhivayuschih reviews doctors say as very effective. They indicate a complete cure with proper selection of the method.
Treatment should begin after the elimination of infectious, bacterial and viral agents that caused inflammation and seeded during the study.
Diathermocoagulation is the effect on the affected surface by high-frequency electric waves. This produces a burn, and then a rough scar. One of its varieties is diathermoconization, in which the affected tissue is cauterized and completely removed. Treatment of cervical erosion in those who do not give birth to this method is unacceptable, since then there may be problems in childbirth, problems with conception, bleeding, inflammatory processes.
The first time, erosion is not completely cured, and repeated treatment is required. Now this method is becoming obsolete, since diathermoconization is used only as an episodic treatment for cancer. Healing occurs after 6-7 weeks. Use for not giving birth is prohibited. This is the cheapest method of treatment. Therefore, many doctors offer diathermocoagulation, even for birthless.Should not agree. Indeed, many new methods are being used: painless, safe and not causing various complications.
This is not the only method of struggle. There are various ways of treating cervical erosion in birthless patients.
This method is based on the effect of liquid nitrogen on tissues, while tissues that are subject to erosion are destroyed by the flow of this substance from a cryoprobe. The point of application is chosen very precisely, and practically healthy tissues are not affected, cicatricial damage is not formed on the cervix. The procedure does not last long. It is painless, it just feels like something is going on inside, it can pull the belly a little. There is no smell. After the procedure, you may feel a little dizzy: this is the effect of nitrogen. However, after two weeks there may be discharge. This method is bloodless and very gentle. But this is not always applicable in cases of erosion affecting the underlying tissue.
Treatment of eroded surfaces with a laser is a modern method. It is considered effective and least dangerous. However, laser therapy can be carried out only in some clinics, since this requires fairly expensive equipment. In fact, the site of erosion is subjected to the sighting of the laser beam.At the same time, the depth of destruction is controlled. Scarring does not remain, but doctors are of the opinion that this procedure is not suitable for those who have not given birth.
Radio wave surgery
This is a non-invasive, fast and painless method. There is an impact on the affected place by radio waves. Sometimes there may be serous discharge. Scar tissue is not formed, healing occurs after a month. Although it is an expensive procedure, it does not cause complications and is quite suitable for those who have not given birth. Examination of a doctor in a month will show an absolutely healthy cervix.
This method is widely used by many doctors, as it does not require expensive equipment. Its application is shown with minor damage - less than a 2-kopeck coin. Eroded areas are treated with special preparations (for example, Solkovagin, Vagotil), which destroy the cylindrical epithelium. The treatment is long and requires several (up to five) procedures. But this method does not guarantee complete recovery.Some women use "grandmothers" treatment methods. Various lotions and douching sea buckthorn oil, nettle, etc.can not only cure, but also worsen the condition of the tissues. At the same time it is found that the wound from above is healed, but will develop in depth. Therefore, it is not necessary to experiment.
All these methods of cauterization are carried out only after menstruation. Until full recovery is not recommended, and sometimes it is prohibited sex life, swimming in reservoirs, bathing, prolonged overheating of the body.
