Today, the diagnosis of "cervical erosion" occursquite often, almost every third woman. Erosion refers to defects on the surface layer of cells covering the cervix. There are two forms of it: true and false (pseudo-erosion).
Erosion: forms, signs and causes
The first form is a sore,arising on the walls of the cervix due to damaged epithelial cells as a result of mechanical action, for example, surgical abortion, traumatic tampon injection, coarse sexual intercourse. In the absence of infections and hormonal disorders, such erosion can heal on its own. But the second form, false erosion, is much more dangerous. It is a response to the formation of cervical defects. In their place, the mucosa begins to grow and a large inflamed area is formed. Such erosion should be treated to prevent its proliferation. After all, places of damage are a very favorable environment for various kinds of infections. The insidiousness of this disease is that it practically does not manifest itself, especially in the early stages. Sometimes there may be spotting after intercourse or simply without a cause in the middle of the cycle. As a rule, women do not pay attention to this, and the existence of erosion is recognized only at a scheduled appointment with a gynecologist. However, the absence of symptoms does not say that it is worth leaving this fact without attention and delaying treatment. This is how many of the nulliparous women act, as there is an opinion that moxibustion can lead to complications during childbirth. Let's see how it corresponds to reality.
Burn or wait
It is believed that curing erosion nulliparousit is forbidden to women. The reason for this prohibition is that after the cauterization procedure there is a scar that prevents the opening of the cervix during delivery, so that it begins to stretch and break. Therefore, all methods of treating erosion in nulliparas should be excluded, the consequences of which can be:
- scar formation;
- severe soft tissue damage;
- spontaneous opening of the cervix, which during pregnancy threatens miscarriage.
Until recently, the most commonThe method of erosion treatment was cauterization with electricity, which led to all of the above consequences. This is why it is not applied to nulliparous women. But it does not say that they do not need to treat erosion, because postponing therapy can lead to dangerous complications. This is a malignant degeneration of cells in the damaged area. Moxibustion in the traditional sense, of course, is undesirable for the cervix of a nulliparous woman. However, today there are various ways to combat erosion, which are suitable for everyone, including those who have not yet become a mother.
Gentle methods of treatment
Treatment of cervical erosion in nulliparous women andgirls are carried out only by sparing methods, after which scars and adhesions are not formed. To date, there are several such methods. Which of them to apply, solves only the doctor individually for each patient.
Each method aims to destroy the affectedcells, however, unlike electrocoagulation, the above methods do not have undesirable consequences for women who still have pregnancy and childbirth. Often, a small erosion at the initial stage is only observed at the gynecologist, before the treatment is prescribed. It should be remembered that there are no universal methods of treating erosion, especially in nulliparous women. Only a doctor can evaluate her nature and prescribe the most suitable treatment with minimal consequences for the patient. In any case, you can not leave the cervix without attention, let the disease itself. Over time, it progresses and can lead to undesirable dangerous consequences. Therefore, you should visit the gynecologist on a regular basis for routine examination, even if you are not worried about anything.
