The treatment of cervical erosion
Often, after examination and a series of laboratory studies the doctor delivers a frightening diagnosis - cervical erosion. Let's see what kind of disorder is this and what should you do after the diagnosis.
Almost every second woman in our country suffers from the erosion of the cervix. The causes of this disease are different, such as hormonal disorders, the impact of foreign microenvironment after the initiation of sexual activity, incompletely and untimely treated urogenital infections. There can be no symptoms at all; sometimes the erosion is manifested with slight bleeding or bloody discharge, especially after sexual intercourse.
Disease is usually diagnosed by colposcopy. This is a study of the cervix under a specially designed microscope. A gynaecologist uses a colposcope to accurately determine the presence or absence of cervical erosion. This instrument is also used for recognizing malignant formations.
The cervix is treated with special harmless iodine-containing dye solutions. This allows to carefully examine the cervix and to identify the pathology. The smear is taken for cytology and the desquamated epithelial cells from the surface of the cervix are studied. Sometimes there is a need for a biopsy. This is a sampling of tiny cervical tissue fragment for the research. The procedure itself is very quick and absolutely painless. It requires special preparation, which will be explained to you by your doctor in advance.
Medicament treatment of cervical erosion should not be performed except for a method of anti-inflammatory therapy.
In our network of clinics we conduct treatment of cervical pathologies with a use of modern and most efficient method – radio wave treatment. The method is simple to use, fast, almost painless and bloodless. The chances of complications in the postoperative period are minimal. Radio wave treatment is effective and safe, as it preserves the cervical tissue and normalizes the vaginal flora. In addition, the method gives a scarless healing and reduces the cervical inflammation.
Remember! Inveterate cervical erosion, lack of proper treatment can lead to irreversible changes in cervical cells and cause the formation of benign and malignant tumors. Therefore, the examination by a gynaecologist twice a year is an obligatory procedure for every woman.
