Pelvic inflammatory disease
(PID) is a common gynecological condition that is divided into two types: acute and chronic. The acute pelvic inflammatory disease has an acute onset, is severe, has significant abdominal pain, and is often accompanied by high fever.
Chronic pelvic inflammatory disease is usually caused by incomplete treatment of acute pelvic inflammatory disease and its prolongation. Sometimes, it can start insidiously without a history of acute pelvic inflammatory disease. When the body's resistance is reduced, patients with the chronic pelvic inflammatory disease can have acute attacks.
Pelvic inflammatory disease can cause infertility.
Pelvic inflammatory disease refers to inflammation of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries or their surrounding tissues, including the peritoneum in the pelvic cavity, anywhere in the woman's pelvis.
The pelvic inflammatory disease can be caused by the upward spread of inflammation of the external genitalia, or by the spread of inflammation of neighboring organs or infections in other parts of the body, often during menstruation, miscarriage, childbirth, or through the trauma of various surgeries in the reproductive tract.
The former has an apparent cause, and if treatment is timely, thorough, and practical, it is often cured, and when acute inflammation is not treated thoroughly, it can become chronic. Still, more often than not, because of the slow onset, the condition is mild and unnoticed, so the treatment is not timely, and it becomes chronic.
The three factors that lead to pelvic inflammatory disease
1. Postpartum or post-abortion infection:
The puerpera is weak after childbirth. The cervix is not closed in time due to residual blood and turbid fluid flowing out. There is a peeling surface of the placenta in the uterine cavity, or the birth canal is damaged by childbirth. Or there are residual placenta and fetal membranes etc. Or early sexual life after delivery, pathogens can invade the uterine cavity by the deficiency.
And it is easy to cause infection; during spontaneous abortion or medical abortion, vaginal bleeding takes too long, or issues remain in the uterine cavity, or the artificial abortion is sterile. If the operation is not strict, a post-abortion infection can occur.
2. Infection after intrauterine surgical operation:
Placement or removal of intrauterine device, curettage, tubal lavage, hysterosalpingography, hysteroscopy, submucosal fibroid removal, etc., may cause PID. Due to preoperative sex or surgical sterilization or improper selection of preoperative indications, the original chronic inflammation of the reproductive tract is disturbed by surgery and causes acute attack and spread.
3. Poor menstrual hygiene:
If women ignore menstrual hygiene, use dirty sanitary napkins and pads, menstrual baths, menstrual sex, etc., it can cause pathogens to invade and cause inflammation.
Conservative treatment for pelvic inflammatory disease
1. Care about sexual life.
Women need to reduce the number of sexually transmitted diseases and prohibit sexual intercourse during menstruation, preventing them from getting infected.
2. Seek medical attention in time.
If women have vulvovaginal discomfort and abnormal leucorrhea, they need to seek medical attention as soon as possible. It is essential to follow the doctor's instructions, not to be nervous, but not to take it lightly, so as not to delay the disease and bring serious consequences. If women find pain and swelling in the lower abdomen, it may be a sign of chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, and they should pay attention to it and perform the necessary tests.
3. Thorough treatment.
If women suffer from acute pelvic inflammatory disease, they need timely treatment and a thorough cure. This can prevent the disease from turning into chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. Chronic pelvic inflammatory disease can be treated with medication.
Many patients now choose the herbal medicine Fuyan Pill to treat chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. Because Fuyan Pill has no side effects and no drug resistance, it also avoids the risk of surgical treatment of infection. And after the cure, the recurrence rate is low, and it can also increase the chance of natural pregnancy.
4. Strictly implement the aseptic operation.
If there is bleeding from the vagina after some of the more common procedures such as abortion, prevention of intrauterine device or pour-in examination, swimming, and tub bathing must be prohibited. After the operation, patients need to do an excellent job of post-operative care.
