This pathology is a defect in the mucous membrane of the vaginal part of the cervix. When it happens the formation of the epithelium damage (due to injury, infection, etc.) on the surface of the cervix, resulting in damaged mucous and can bleed. On examination with the mirrors eroded surface looks as bright red spots. The photos of erosion can be seen here.
Erosion may be asymptomatic, but sometimes patients concerned allocation. It’s either bleach or spotting (brown or pinkish color), leaves traces on clothes.
The causes are several:
inflammatory process. Especially obvious is a correlation of the erosion with sexually transmitted diseases (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, human papillomavirus) and dysbiosis (violation of microflora) of the vagina;
cervical trauma – abortion, after giving birth with the rupture of the neck, rough sexual intercourse, using barrier contraceptives.
hormonal disorders and reduced immunity;
early sexual activity. At the age of about 20 years, the protective properties of the cervix are not perfect, in response to even the most trivial infection erosion can develop.
These reasons are the most relevant, but there are others, more rare.
Despite the fact that the disease is widespread among women, treating it should be serious. Erosion is dangerous because it is the backdrop for the development of cancer, or in a scientific way, it can cause an optional precancer. Therefore, the detection of this disease and its treatment is required.
The growth rate of erosion may vary. It is impossible to say how the diameter of a defect in the mucosa will increase. However, it is a mistake to believe that a small-sized defect is not dangerous. The risk of malignant transformation is in every erosion.
You can, but the advanced stage of the disease causes the narrowing of the cervical canal, which can restrict the movement of sperm into the uterus.
Pregnancy is possible after cauterization. It is necessary to plan conception no earlier than one month after treatment.
During pregnancy, the erosion is quite common. Usually, treatment is not carried out during this period, and the patient has to just watch. The disease itself does not affect fetal development during pregnancy and, if not in the advanced stage. During childbearing proliferative processes (there is an active cell division) dominate in the woman’s body, and the likelihood of cancer increases. Nevertheless, before the conception, plan to visit a gynecologist for preventive maintenance Erosion is much easier to cure before pregnancy than after it.
Not, it does not influence the delivery.
Cervical erosion is very often accompanied by infection. During pregnancy, infections are dangerous because they can cause it to interrupt, fetal abnormalities and purulent complications after birth. However, due to the dynamic observation of vaginal erosion and rehabilitation these problems can be avoided.
Erosion can affect reproductive function in the case where there is a narrowing of the cervical canal, but in most cases it does not influence the reproduction.
Yes, you can. However, please note that the intercourse may be painful, and after it you can have spotting.
Hormonal imbalance can lead to a decrease in libido. Also, the reason for the lack of sexual arousal may be pain during sexual intercourse.
The erosion itself does not cause cystitis, but the presence of infection and concomitant decrease in the body’s immune system can lead to the disease. But the erosion can cause dysplasia, or go directly to the cancer.
Yes, cervical erosion is a background for the development of cancer disease.
There are cases of self-healing. Most often this occurs with congenital cervical erosion (pseudo). But it is better not to let things take their course, and you had better visit the gynecologist, and, if necessary, treat the disease.
Sometimes the treatment of cervical erosion is unpleasant, often the feelings are like nagging pains in the abdomen, as during menstruation.
One of the results can be the formation of scar moxibustion on-site erosion, which could complicate the natural childbirth cervical fractures. Most current treatments do not have this complication (laser therapy, cryosurgery, radio-wave method).
Yes. If congenital erosion joined the inflammatory process, then it should be treated. In other cases, you need only to observe. At puberty, during pregnancy and after childbirth, such erosion can pass itself.
Yes, while eliminating the causes of the disease. If you can not get rid of HPV, erosion may recur.
There are traditional methods of treatment of cervical erosion, which is carried out at the local treatment using herbs, oils, honey, etc. However, such treatment is not always effective. It is better to trust the professionals.
The consequence of cervical erosion is a chronic inflammation, which can lead to infertility, as well as the risk of degeneration of benign to malignant.
If the cause is an infectious disease, it is possible to transmit microbial pathogens (chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, human papillomavirus, etc. The erosion itself is not contagious.
Yes, erosion can be diagnosed to girls. It can be congenital or related to the hormonal failure or infection (which is rare). Inspection of virgins is performed using special small mirrors.
