Mentioning gynecological diseases is always a headache for some women. The incidence is high; the recurrence rate is high and endless. Many females have expressed that their spirits will weaken if it is for a long time.
Gynecological inflammation is a common disease in women, and it mainly refers to the inflammation of female reproductive organs, including female vulvitis, vaginitis, cervicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, etc.
We will talk about pelvic inflammatory disease today, which is more concerned among women of childbearing age and can easily lead to infertility.
In clinical practice, pelvic inflammatory disease is a relatively large concept with many contents, so there are many clinical symptoms and classifications. Pelvic inflammatory disease can be divided into endometrium inflammation, uterine inflammation, fallopian tube inflammation, ovarian inflammation, and pelvic peritoneal inflammation.
Can pelvic inflammation lead to infertility? The answer is YES. Pelvic inflammation is a common gynecological disease that refers to the infectious female upper reproductive tract, often involving the pelvic organs. If the uterus is concerned, it can cause endometritis.
The endometrium is an essential factor in the implantation and development of the fertilized egg. If there is inflammation, it will hinder the implantation of the fertilized egg and cause infertility. If the fallopian tube is involved, it may cause adhesion and blockage of the fallopian tube, hinder the combination of sperm and egg, and cause infertility. Salpingitis may also affect the swimming of the fertilized egg and cause ectopic pregnancy.
You need to be alert if you also experience the following symptoms:
The main symptom of pelvic inflammatory disease is irregular menstruation. In the early stage, due to endometrial congestion, menorrhagia may occur. If the disease isn't treated for a long time and the lining of the uterus has been destroyed, it will result in oligomenorrhea or even amenorrhea.
Lower abdominal pain
Lower abdominal pain and bloating are common symptoms of pelvic inflammatory disease caused by pelvic congestion or scarring, especially in sexual life, and fatigue, which will happen before and after menstruation.
Clinically, many people find pelvic inflammatory disease due to infertility. It is because pelvic inflammation will damage the fallopian tube mucosa, cause tubal adhesions, and cause it to lose normal fallopian function, thereby affecting conception.
However, this is a more serious situation. Generally, mild pelvic inflammatory disease can lead to normal pregnancy.
This symptom is not typical and can be manifested as low-grade fever and tiredness. If the disease is prolonged, some patients may also experience neurasthenia symptoms.
So, how should women prevent pelvic inflammatory disease in their lives?
1. Eliminate the way of infection: Keeping the perineum clean and dry can reduce the chance of bacterial infection. Women are recommended to clean the vulva with clean water every night and use a privacy basin. Never use your hands to wash the vagina; do not use hot water, soap, etc., to clean the vulva.
Change underwear frequently; do not wear tight, chemical fiber underwear.
2. Pay attention to personal hygiene: Women may experience vaginal bleeding during the menstrual period, after abortion, and after gynecological operations such as piercing and ring removal. During this period, sex life, swimming, tub bathing, and sauna bathing must be prohibited.
At the same time, it is necessary to change sanitary napkins frequently because the body's resistance decreases during menstruation, and pathogenic bacteria can enter, causing infection.
3. Observing leucorrhea: On weekdays, you should observe whether the leucorrhea is abnormal and whether the quantity, quality, color, and taste of the leucorrhea are abnormal. Those with a large amount of leucorrhea, a thick yellow color, and a foul odor indicate that inflammatory infection may occur.
4. Actively cooperate with treatment: Patients with other gynecological diseases must actively cooperate with the doctor's treatment, pay attention to rest or take a semi-recumbent position to facilitate the localization of inflammation and the discharge of secretions.
