Endocervicitis or cervicitis
Endocervicitis or cervicitis is a disease characterized by inflammation of the mucous membrane of the cervical canal. Patients complain of specific vaginal discharge. Often, along with the disease occur endometritis, colpitis, pseudo-cervix, etc. Cause inflammation of the cervix is the gonococcus, staphylococcus, streptococcus, Chlamydia, and various viruses and fungi. Penetration of bacteria can occur during childbirth, abortion, treatment of any disease. Sometimes the disease can occur in a greased form. It depends on the general condition of the body.
Cervicitis is not cured in the acute form, becomes chronic. It is important degree of penetration of microorganisms in the mucosa of the cervical canal. Sometimes a chronic form of the disease may go into acute. Inflammation may occur as well when thrush, Chlamydiosis, trichomoniasis and other diseases.
The diagnosis is made at the examination. The entrance to the cervix is sealed and hyperemic. When the diagnosis is often conducted colposcopy. When it conducting vascular loops is detected and investigated the processes occurring in parallel (erosion). In smears revealed cells are rejected and cylindrical epithelium; most often they are not changed. For an accurate diagnosis is necessary to identify and determine the causative agent. Depending on the pathogen treatment is prescribed.
Treatment is conservative, similar to the treatment of inflammatory diseases, with other sites. Antibiotics are effective for accurate determination of the sensitivity of disease pathogens to the drug. It is therefore important not to neglect the analysis, they are often necessary to carry out repeatedly. Local treatment is difficult, in contrast to the treatment of infectious inflammation of the vagina. But, nevertheless, local therapy in the form of washes and douches needed. These measures help to suppress the infection and stop its spread. Undergo a course of treatment must be both partners. Sexual activity during this period is better to stop.
