The Source of Lower Abdominal Pain Revealed: Linked to This Inflammation

Salpingitis is a relatively common form of pelvic inflammatory disease in women. It is mostly caused by pathogenic infections, mainly by Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Escherichia coli, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Haemophilus influenzae, Pneumococcus, Chlamydia, etc. It is divided into acute salpingitis and chronic salpingitis, usually presenting various discomfort symptoms. If not treated in time, it can also harm women's health.


Salpingitis generally refers to the inflammation of the fallopian tubes in women. The inflammatory substances irritate the fallopian tubes, leading to adhesion, congestion, and edema of the fallopian tube walls, causing symptoms such as lower abdominal pain, abnormal menstrual periods, dysmenorrhea, and increased vaginal discharge. 

There is often significant pain in the abdomen, possibly accompanied by pain in the sacral area. If the inflammation persists for a long time, it may lead to fibrosis and thickening of the fallopian tubes, leading to blockage and hydrosalpinx, causing infertility.

Lower abdominal pain is one of the symptoms of salpingitis, but this type of pain differs from menstrual cramps. Patients may experience lower abdominal distension and unbearable back pain even outside of their menstrual period.

Moreover, salpingitis can be acute or chronic, and the symptoms of pain vary accordingly.

1. Acute salpingitis is primarily characterized by high fever, chills, and accompanied by severe pain on both sides of the lower abdomen, increased vaginal discharge or irregular vaginal bleeding, etc.; sometimes accompanied by symptoms such as frequent urination, urgent urination, and painful urination. Severe cases of acute salpingitis may present with abdominal muscle tension, tenderness in the lower abdomen, and significant rebound pain.

2. Chronic salpingitis is mostly due to inadequate or incomplete treatment of acute salpingitis. Patients with chronic salpingitis may have no symptoms or mild symptoms, with common symptoms including lower abdominal pain, mostly a dull ache, accompanied by soreness in the sacral area and a sensation of heaviness. Patients with chronic salpingitis may also experience menstrual irregularities, dysmenorrhea, and increased vaginal discharge.

If women experience symptoms of lower abdominal pain, it is crucial to seek medical attention promptly to determine the cause. For lower abdominal pain caused by salpingitis, it is essential to actively eliminate the inflammation to prevent its spread and the development of fallopian tube pathology and other reproductive organ disorders.

In cases of acute salpingitis, which is often caused by bacterial infection, the use of appropriate antibiotics can effectively control the infection. However, for chronic salpingitis, traditional Chinese medicine such as Fuyan Pill can be used for treatment. It can eliminate various pathogens, reduce inflammation in the fallopian tubes, and alleviate abdominal pain and discomfort in patients.

Alongside active treatment for salpingitis, it is also important to follow the doctor's guidance on adequate and full-course medication. Patients should not arbitrarily adjust the dosage or discontinue medication to avoid recurrence of the condition. Personal hygiene should be maintained, with daily cleaning of the genital area with warm water, frequent changing of underwear, and avoidance of sitz baths and vaginal douching. Sexual activity should be avoided during the treatment period.

Additionally, patients should enhance their nutrition by consuming foods rich in protein and vitamins, such as milk, beef, fish, grapes, citrus fruits, and carrots. These can strengthen the body's immune system and promote recovery from the illness.
