How to treat erosion - methods and recommendations
With the diagnosis of erosion of the cervix collidemany women. This disease often does not manifest itself in any way and becomes an "accidental" finding during the examination of the gynecologist. Therefore, some women even doubt whether to treat cervical erosion, if nothing hurts and does not bother. But this attitude often leads to the fact that this is, in general, a fairly harmless disease at first, grows into a big problem and leads to a formidable diagnosis like cervical cancer. So, it is necessary to take measures and find out how to treat erosion in each specific case.
You should start by choosing a doctor. It's great if a woman already has a proven gynecologist who can be treated with any problem and be sure that he will not prescribe all conceivable and unthinkable analyzes driven by the desire to profit from the laboratory, and his appointments will be literate and correct. If there is no such doctor, then it is necessary to find it. You can ask friends and acquaintances, or look for reviews about specific doctors and clinics on local Internet forums. It is not necessary to go immediately to an expensive clinic, sometimes specialists of the ordinary district clinic advise no worse and can give good advice about how to treat erosion in a particular the case. Although, of course, from where to treat erosion, depends on the choice of methods, and in this aspect, women's clinics and clinics clearly lose to modern medical facilities equipped with modern equipment.
How to treat erosion, the doctor determines, having studiedthe patient's anamnesis and a complete examination, during which the woman will need to pass some tests and undergo colposcopy. This procedure is an examination of the cervix with a special microscope, which allows to examine in detail the erosion for determining the tactics of treatment. If a woman has inflammatory or infectious diseases of the genitals, then before deciding how to treat erosion, it is necessary to eliminate all existing problems.
If the eroded surface has smallsizes, you can try to start with conservative methods of treatment, consisting in the use of special healing medications that are injected on tampons or applied to the cervix by a gynecologist. The duration of the course of treatment is determined by the doctor. However, sometimes conservative methods do not help, or the doctor from the very beginning says that in this case they will not be sufficiently effective. Then you have to resort to surgical methods of erosion treatment. These include electro-diathermocoagulation (electric cauterization), cryodestruction (erosion freezing with liquid nitrogen), laser therapy and the radio wave method (using a radio-wave knife). How to treat erosion and which method to give preference depends on many factors, the main of which are the age of the patient, the presence of her children and then whether she is going to give birth in the future. The nulliparous women are strongly advised not to treat erosion by diathermocoagulation, because under the influence of electric current on the cervix of the uterus, scars form which later can interfere with the normal course of labor and even the process of bearing the baby.
The most modern methods are the impact onlaser and radio wave erosion. Their advantages are a painless postoperative period, rapid healing and absence of scar tissue on the cervix. Such procedures are not carried out in each clinic, their cost is high enough, and the manipulation itself requires a high level of performance, so the choice of a specialist and a medical institution must be taken seriously and responsibly. And, of course, in order for the postoperative period to pass most smoothly, one must strictly observe all the prescriptions and recommendations of the treating doctor.
