Symptoms and treatment of chronic ureaplasmosis women
The woman threatened the ureaplasmosis? Besides the fact that this disease can cause other diseases (pyelonephritis, cystitis, inflammation of the appendages), anaplasmosis can lead to such tragic consequences like premature birth, pregnancy complications and even miscarriage.
The most unpleasant in the course of this disease is that the acute form of anaplasmosis is very rare, the symptoms are usually blurred, sometimes almost absent, which is often a woman gets an appointment to the doctor is already running chronic ureaplasmosis.
The symptoms of chronic ureaplasmosis
Unfortunately, women rarely listen to your body and tend to endure ailments on his feet. They try to pay less attention to their poor health, resorting to symptomatic medication and sometimes medication, exacerbating the disease and making it difficult for later diagnosis.
That the body has Ureaplasma, can give these symptoms:
- frequent urge to urinate;
- urination pain and burning;
- pain in the lower part of the stomach (symptoms of inflammation of the appendages or of inflammatory processes in the uterus);
- vaginal discharge, initially clear, then yellow or yellow-green, with unpleasant smell;
- sexual intercourse accompanied by pain;
- sexual dysfunction (dysmenorrhea, infertility).
In addition to this there is also a General malaise: fatigue, headache, low-grade fever.
These symptoms are called indirect because there is no certainty that they indicate that a woman is sick with anaplasmosis: many of the symptoms characteristic of a number of diseases, including urological.
So, vaginal discharge is typical of many sexually transmitted diseases, and frequent calls to urinate in combination with painful sensations during the process - one of the main symptoms of cystitis. But we should not forget that chronic flow of a ureaplasmosis cystitis often occurs as a complication. Symptoms must be differentiated to identify the true causes of their occurrence.
In any case, if there is at least one ofsymptoms, this malfunction of the body and we need to go to the doctors. Dismissive attitude towards their health and self-treatment lead to the fact that the disease can occur many years, appearing only indirectly, but women are carriers of infection and will infect a ureaplasmosis their sexual partners. With the appearance of at least one of these symptoms the woman needs to consult a doctor who will prescribe the necessary tests and additional tests will select the treatment regimen.
Transmission of anaplasmosis
The incubation period of the disease up to 4 weeks. Contrary to popular belief, domestic way (through common things: clothes, dishes, washcloths, etc.), anaplasmosis is not transmitted. To infect each other can partners during sexual contact. Anaplasmosis can infect a fetus during pregnancy, also the result of maternal illness can be a congenital or neonatal pneumonia in children.
The impetus for the awakening of dormant in the body of the exciter may be the use of hormones and antibiotics a certain number. Belong to the risk group of persons with early onset of sexual activity and those who neglect the means of protection during intercourse.
A chronic form of anaplasmosis is diagnosed at the initial examination very often due to the fact that women seek medical help when all symptoms are clearly. Often this diagnosis in women is pursued in the appeal concerning female infertility.
Treatment of a ureaplasmosis
After the laboratory tests revealed the causative agent is most often used for this bacteriological method and PCR technique (polymerase chain reaction) treatment.
It must be remembered that the treatment should take place not only diseased woman, but also her partner.
Extreme caution is necessary to treat a ureaplasmosis in pregnancy: in early pregnancy contraindicated antibiotics because they negatively affect fetal development. In any period of compulsory taking vitamin complexes and other remedies that strengthen the immune system (Timalin, Taktivin). At the end of the course of antibiotics is also appointed bifidobacteria, restoring the intestinal microflora (Linex, Bifiform). We recommend taking medications to restore liver function.
A course of antibiotics - no more than 2 weeks. All products are selected by the doctor strictly individually, taking into account the form of anaplasmosis and personal tolerability of the patient.
There are a number of conditions that accompany the entire course of treatment. The first: a complete ban of sex in any form before the end of treatment and obtain pure laboratory tests for both partners. Second, the exclusion from the dietalcohol, fatty and spicy foods. Nutritionists recommend taking during treatment, more fruits and vegetables each day, the diet should be dairy products.
If some time after the end of treatment again show the same symptoms, the doctor should prescribe other antibiotics that are not resistant Ureaplasma.
But most importantly, we must remember that any disease is easier to prevent than to cure. This is especially true of chronic illness.
