Ureaplasma cause Abdominal Pain

More and more patients with Ureaplasma urealyticum infection are now experiencing abdominal pain.

So, how does Ureaplasma urealyticum cause abdominal pain? What should we do to relieve and treat Ureaplasma urealyticum?

First, we need to know what Ureaplasma urealyticum is.

Ureaplasma urealyticum belongs to the class Zooxanthellae and is the smallest microorganism without a cell wall. It cannot usually be visualized by Gram staining (a method used to identify bacteria), and these organisms are often cultured in special media containing animal serum.

Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma parvum together form the Ureaplasma genus, which is one of the eight genera of Mycoplasma. Therefore, when some laboratory test reports indicate 'Ureaplasma,' it is synonymous with 'Ureaplasma urealyticum.'

So what is it exactly? In short, Ureaplasma urealyticum is one of the common microorganisms of the human genitourinary tract that can cause disease under certain circumstances.

Why does Ureaplasma urealyticum cause abdominal pain?

Ureaplasma Urealyticum mainly resides in the human genitourinary tract. If a patient shows positive for Ureaplasma Urealyticum through examination, they are infected with Ureaplasma Urealyticum. Ureaplasma Urealyticum infection may cause non-gonococcal urethritis, vaginitis, or cervicitis, leading to miscarriage, infertility, and intrauterine growth retardation. 

If Ureaplasma urealyticum positivity causes vaginitis or cervicitis, it may lead to irritation from local inflammatory factors, causing symptoms such as abdominal pain, increased vaginal discharge, abnormal color of the discharge, and odor. Abdominal pain may also occur if Ureaplasma leads to miscarriage.

Abdominal pain caused by Ureaplasma urealyticum can be relieved by general treatment, medication, physical therapy, and traditional Chinese medicine therapy. The specific treatment for the patient needs to consider the severity of his condition.

1. General treatment

If the patient's condition is not particularly serious, drinking more water can improve it. Drinking more water can promote the metabolism of the patient's body and, to a certain extent, can also effectively improve the symptoms of abdominal pain.

2. Drug treatment

If the patient's condition is more serious, they can also take antibiotic drugs under the guidance of the doctor for treatment so as to achieve the effect of improving the disease.

3. Physical therapy

If the patient's abdominal pain symptoms are more serious, they can also deal with it through hot compress massage, which can promote local blood circulation and, to a certain extent, effectively relieve abdominal pain symptoms.

4. Traditional Chinese medicine therapy

If the patient's condition is more severe and cannot improve by the above treatments, it can also be treated with TCM acupuncture or massage.

5. Other treatment

If the patient has other uncomfortable symptoms, seeking medical treatment in time is recommended to avoid delaying the condition.

In daily life, patients should also pay attention to the usual healthy diet:

Eat more foods high in vitamins: Patients with Ureaplasma urealyticum infection should eat foods rich in vitamins, which help to strengthen the individual's immunity. Vitamin C, mainly, is high in antioxidants, which help speed up wound healing.

Eat more digestible food: Patients with Ureaplasma urealyticum infection should take more nutritious and easy-to-digest foods, such as rib soup, chicken soup, fish, etc.

Eat less spicy food: Avoid spicy and stimulating food such as chili peppers, ginger, onions, etc. Tobacco and alcohol also need to be avoided.
