Treatment of cervical erosion and pregnancy
The presence of cervical erosion is detected in many women. And when you hear a similar diagnosis from your doctor, you should not be afraid. Depending on its type and neglect, the doctor will be able to choose the appropriate treatment that will help you to forget about this problem forever. What is hidden under this concept?
Cervical erosion is a fairly common diagnosis. In essence, this is the appearance of one or several defects on the mucous membrane. This can happen for several reasons:
- There is a variant of congenital erosion, which often passes on its own after the body undergoes hormonal restructuring.
- Sometimes true erosion is diagnosed, which is a small wound on the mucous membrane. It is usually rather quickly delayed without outside intervention.
- Allocate more false erosion, which is the most common option. It is her doctors who most often try to heal by applying cauterization of cervical erosion.
This procedure has several options and is carried out using:
- electric current;
- liquid nitrogen;
If cervical erosion requires surgery, it will most likely be carried out with an electric current. In this case, the affected area of the mucous membrane is subject to an effect, resulting in a crust (crust). Carry out this procedure at the beginning of the cycle, so that later on there will be a rejection of this dead tissue and the restoration of normal epithelium.
With all its simplicity and accessibility, this method has several disadvantages. The main one is the duration of recovery, which will occur over the next two months or more. The next drawback is an increased risk of scarring, which reduces the elasticity of the cervix. Therefore, this procedure is not recommended for women who have not yet given birth.
A more benign method is the use of liquid nitrogen. The substance itself is applied to the mucous point, affecting only the damaged cells. The advantage of this treatment is that it is bloodless and does not cause pain, and healing takes place in 1-1.5 months. The disadvantage of this treatment is incomplete confidence in the destruction of all affected cells.Nitrogen is not used for the treatment of deep enough erosion, as well as damage of irregular shape (the apparatus for manipulation has certain dimensions).
However, finding a place where you can spend this procedure is difficult. Not all clinics can afford such equipment, but only those that use advanced technologies.
In any case, the doctor should decide on the method of treatment of cervical erosion, based on your condition, the severity of the disease and individual characteristics.
If you do not want any complications after the procedure, then you should give up sex, fitness, hot water baths, visits to places like the bath or sauna.
You may also experience interruptions in the menstrual cycle, which is the norm after this procedure and any such interventions.However, in the case when everything did not return to normal within two months, a specialist should be consulted.
Cauterization is not an obstacle to pregnancy, but if you want to bear the fetus and give birth without complications, it is better to take a break for 2-3 months from the moment of the procedure to pregnancy.
After the procedure, you may experience symptoms such as bleeding or abdominal pain. You may also notice the presence of mucous secretions from the cauterization site. If you find yourself bleeding heavily, you should immediately seek medical help. In this case, the doctor will prescribe you the necessary treatment.
Small pains in the lower abdomen can either be endured or removed with antispasmodics. In the case of their gain, you should also consult a doctor.
However, cauterization, most often, is not the end of treatment. In addition to the procedure itself, you will also be prescribed medications that will speed healing of the wound. You may need to use other drugs that will improve your well-being and contribute to the restoration of the mucous membrane.
Uterine fibroma and pregnancy
When you are diagnosed with uterine fibroids, then be prepared for the fact that this will significantly reduce the possibility of conceiving a child. However, there are statistics according to which women manage to become pregnant even in the presence of such a disease.
Fibroma or uterine fibroids and pregnancy are compatible, although this may lead to some complications. In addition to problems with conception, which is explained by the narrowing of the tubes (interferes with the normal movement of sperm) and impaired ovulation, there is a real threat of miscarriage. It is particularly acute in the first trimester, when the fetus is still very weak, and uterine fibroma is in close proximity to it, or it is of considerable size. This formation is a concentration of hormones that can cause muscle contraction. In addition, uterine fibroids can lead to detachment of the placenta.
Also, the presence of such an education can cause premature birth and the birth of a premature baby. It is known that uterine fibroma can cause the appearance of congenital torticollis or various deformities of the baby’s head.
Therefore, before planning a pregnancy, it is necessary to undergo an examination and make sure that the diagnosis of uterine fibroids is not your case.If you have found an education, then it is worth undergoing a course of treatment that will help get rid of it.
Pregnancy and cyst of the yellow body
Often, after undergoing an ultrasound during pregnancy, future mothers may notice records that a “yellow body cyst” has appeared, which has certain dimensions. Do not be afraid of such results, because there is nothing strange. The formation of the corpus luteum during pregnancy is a normal process, as it is a source of the hormone progesterone, which plays an important role during pregnancy. It may form a cyst of the corpus luteum or a vial filled with fluid.
The task of doctors is to monitor how the yellow body “works” and what its condition is at certain periods of pregnancy. Over time (somewhere by the 16th week), the corpus luteum and cyst of the corpus luteum dissolve as the placenta forms, which enumerates its functions. However, it also happens that this formation persists further, right up to the birth itself.In this case, the doctor monitors the behavior of the cyst of the corpus luteum, whether it prevents the development of the fetus. For this purpose, a constant ultrasound is performed, during which the size of the corpus luteum is monitored. If they are normal, then everything is in order.
If the corpus luteum is too small or too large, medical intervention is required. In the first case, this formation will not be able to produce enough progesterone, which can lead to miscarriage. And in the second case, an operation can be prescribed so that the cyst of the corpus luteum is removed from the mother's body. It is carried out quite simply and is not a threat to pregnancy.
The way the cyst of the yellow body will form, you will not notice. Since this process is natural, there will be no discomfort. But its presence, you can determine for some of the symptoms. So, the cyst of the yellow body will cause a feeling of discomfort and pain that you will notice with even greater force after sexual intercourse or playing sports.
With all the safety of this formation, it should be ensured that the cyst of the corpus luteum does not rupture and its leg is not twisted.Otherwise, it can lead to inflammation in the abdominal cavity or the death of the tissues around this formation. You should carefully listen to all the recommendations of the doctor and strictly follow them during gestation. In this case, your pregnancy will pass without any particular complications and will end in a happy birth of the baby.
Pregnancy and inflammation of the uterus
A disease such as inflammation of the uterus is very common and quite insidious. After all, it can be asymptomatic, going from acute to chronic. And then inflammation of the uterus can lead to the development of infertility, which is very difficult to treat.
During the development of this disease, the patency of the tubes decreases, which means that the sperm will be difficult to penetrate the egg cell. Thus, inflammation of the uterus leads to obstruction of the tubes. Changes in the ovarian capsule, which becomes thicker, are also noted. This prevents the egg from leaving the capsule, which makes conception impossible.
When the patient does not see a doctor to cure inflammation of the uterus, the inner surface of the peritoneum may be affected.In this case, the formation of adhesions is observed, which reduce the mobility of the internal organs.
Therefore, at the first sign of any irregularities in the uterus or the menstrual cycle, you should seek the help of a specialist. He will be able to diagnose inflammation of the uterus and determine the form of the disease. Based on the data, the doctor will select the treatment.
No matter what disease you have found - fibroids or inflammation of the uterus - you should not worry and worry very much. With adequate and timely treatment, you can get rid of these problems and plan pregnancy.
