Inflammation of female genitalia is a serious problem that any woman can come across. Various reasons cause inflammation in the human body. They may differ in symptoms, their effect on other body, and have their own methods of treatment and prevention.
Genital inflammations in women are often caused by sexually transmitted infections (STIs), severe stress, overcooling, illnesses in other body parts, inappropriate physical activity, alcohol abuse and other factors.
All female genital diseases can be divided into 2 groups: specific and nonspecific.
STDs refer to the specific group. Some of them are:
- gonococcus (causative agent of gonorrhea);
- pale treponema;
Most of them have a latent form, that’s why a woman can have no clue that she is infected. Only a complex STD test can show whether she carries the infection or not. In the meantime, the development of the infection can eventually lead to an inflammation in the woman’s genitals.
Nonspecific inflammatory diseases:
- vaginal candidiasis (thrush);
- E. coli;
- proteins and other
These diseases are caused by opportunistic pathogenic bacteria. They can stay in the body for a certain time, without doing any harm or causing any symptoms. Nevertheless, once the immune system of the woman decreases, the bacteria begin their pathogenic effect.
Normally, female body gives particular signs if her body is in danger. For example, lower abdominal pain, feverish condition, nausea, vomiting, excessive vaginal discharge are manifestations of an inflammatory process in the female genitalia.
The treatment for the inflammation is defined by its reasons and probable complications. Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory medicines are used to stop the disease. Immune stimulants help to improve the woman’s immune system.
