About half of the women at least once in theirlife heard the words of a gynecologist: "You have a small erosion of the cervix." The reaction to this message is very different - from confusion to panic. Most often, fears are completely unreasonable, but you need to pay attention to your condition. Erosion of the cervix is called the whole group of gynecological abnormalities. Some of them are absolutely not dangerous and do not even require treatment, but some can lead to serious illnesses. What to do next in your case - the doctor will recommend. Either it will be necessary to conduct a number of medical events in the clinic, or wait, and everything will pass by itself, or by popular means to try to treat erosion of the cervix independently.
Symptoms of cervical erosion and the possibility of treatment with folk remedies
In most cases, erosion of the cervixhas no specific symptoms and is found by chance during a gynecological examination. The fact is that there are no pain receptors on the cervix, so even serious changes - ulcers and detachments - remain completely unnoticeable for women. So maybe, if it does not hurt, then do not treat? This logic, unfortunately, is common and sometimes leads to serious complications. Therefore, often gynecologists use tactics of intimidation and declare every erosion almost as a prelude to cervical cancer.
On the possibility of pregnancy, uterine erosion is notaffects nothing. The only possible limitation is that during a pregnancy that has already begun, usually, surgical treatment of erosion by burning or other methods is not performed, as it negatively affects the ability of the cervix to stretch, and this makes future birth difficult. In case of emergency, all procedures are simply postponed for a while after delivery. Often after delivery, erosion passes by itself.
Types of cervical erosions
The main types of cervical erosion are two - pseudo-erosion and true erosion. Understand the difference between them and decide on the possibility of treating cervical erosion folk remedies will help you to take photos.
So name the appearance on the outer surfacethe uterus from the side of the vagina cells, which normally should be exclusively in the internal cervical canal. It looks like a spot of bright red color on the outer surface of the cervix. Such an erosion of physicians is called ectopia (see photo)
The reasons for its appearance:
use of drugs containing sex hormones
adverse ecological situation
mechanical damage during intercourse
early onset of sexual activity (cervix develops to 21-23 years)
Often ectopic manifestation is still in adolescence, andit happens, and in childhood, although most often it is discovered much later. This erosion in itself is not dangerous, it's not a disease, after birth it usually passes without any treatment, and sometimes it disappears without giving birth. However, it can become complicated as a result of infection, and this will already require treatment. Too much pseudo-erosion can also prevent the formation of a mucous plug, which prevents penetration of pathogens into the uterine cavity. Therefore, although in adolescents this kind of erosion is not necessary to treat, for adult women, the use of folk remedies and prevention, at least, does not hurt. And supervision at the gynecologist, certainly, is obligatory.
With true erosion (it is called ectropion of the cervixuterus), the cervical margin turns outward, the mucosa begins to exfoliate and become covered with sores (see photo). As a result, the microflora of the vagina penetrates into the uterus and can cause inflammation.
Reasons for true erosion:
hereditary factors (congenital ectropion)
trauma from childbirth and abortion
scars from poor-quality joints at ruptures
Infectious and inflammatory diseases
Most often the cause of ectropion isinfection. The most difficult option - if it is an infection of some of the strains of the papilloma virus, really provoking cancer. Cases of this infection are rare, but it is this infection that leads to the most negative consequences. Therefore, any cases of cervical erosion necessarily require a cytological study to exclude the possibility of developing cancer. And even if we are not talking about oncology, the inflammation caused by pathogenic microbes needs adequate treatment. In this case, the best option would be a combination of methods proposed by the gynecologist with folk methods of treating cervical erosion for early healing.
Folk remedies for the treatment of cervical erosion
Folk remedies for cervical erosionit is recommended to use it without consulting the gynecologist, as they all imply either syringing or tampon medication administration. The fact is that both these methods do not protect against a possible infection. And in general, the true erosion of the cervix is best after all not treated with folk remedies, but by the safe removal of those areas of the mucosa that can provide the basis for the development of malignant tumors, and this is feasible only in the conditions of a gynecological clinic. However, as an auxiliary treatment, especially in the case of pseudo-erosion of the cervix, folk remedies are quite applicable.
