There are many female diseases that do not manifest themselves for a long time, but their late treatment can dramatically lead to complications and serious problems. One of these pathologies is cervical erosion. In order for a woman’s health to be good, it is necessary to regularly conduct an examination by a gynecologist. Practically every woman has problems with the cervix, so it is not recommended to neglect going to the hospital. After burning erosion complications can begin. How to respond to bleeding, what can be complications?
Types of erosion and cautery method
There are several types of erosion:
Neck erosion, cauterization
- True erosion, which develops due to the disappearance of the epithelium. During the removal of the membrane on the surface of the mucous membrane, a lesion occurs, and this can cause bleeding. It is difficult and long to treat this type of erosion, even after cauterization, the wound may bleed for three weeks, until a new layer of epithelium grows and the skin is completely tightened.
- Congenital erosion. Most often occurs after labor, and after a time it can disappear on its own. In this case, the probability of developing cancer is minimized, but with its long-term presence and non-treatment, the risk appears.
How is the cautery procedure carried out? Immediately it must be emphasized that the technique is unpleasant. The point of the procedure is to kill the infected tissue due to the high temperature, the dying piece comes out of the body and the healthy one grows in its place. Most often, for about three weeks, a woman suffers from aching pain and unpleasant slightly bloody discharge. During this period, such discharge is considered the norm.
Cauterize in three ways:
- by electricity
- laser radiation
- radio wave
If you follow all the necessary recommendations of the doctor, the result of treatment will be positive.
The main causes of blood discharge
Until the end, it was not possible to study all the causes of this pathology. In fact, most often the disease is asymptomatic and painless. In medicine, the specialists have established the following factors causing bleeding:
- hormonal failure
- age changes
- early sex life and constant change of partners
- getting injured during abortions and childbirth
- frequent inflammatory processes of the female reproductive system
- weak immunity
After cauterization, it is not necessary to take any medications and use candles, for a month it is necessary to leave the genitals alone. Recovery without additional intervention will occur by itself.
Sometimes due to the fact that the erosion was too great, and perhaps the doctor acted carelessly, you may need additional cauterization. It is important to follow all precautions and strictly follow the instructions of the attending physician.
Bleeding can also occur due to non-healing of the wound, at which point lysing and accumulation of blood clots occur. These clots due to cauterization begin to split, and bleeding begins. Also, blood appears if a woman starts to live sexually very early or has strong physical exertion on the body. Due to the pressure and the load, the protective film begins to tear and the wound bleeds.
Lizirovanie scab – characteristics, features
Lysing a scab is the formation of a special protective film that protects the mucous system of organs from damage, microbes and promotes rapid healing. Blood clots are lysed for a month, which is why during this period a woman appears bleeding. An eschar is easily damaged by early sexual intercourse or simply by wearing heaviness and excessive athletic load. Therefore, the doctor recommends up to two months to give up sex and lead a quiet lifestyle. After a full recovery, you can again lead a normal rhythm of life.
Before prescribing, the physician must ensure that the bleeding has begun. If the reason is a hormonal failure and menstrual cycle disturbance after cauterization, then medical therapy will not be needed. Irregular menstruation in the first months after treatment is quite normal. It is important to carry out cauterization immediately after the end of menstruation, then such complications should not be.
However, if the bleeding occurred due to scab and film injury, then the doctor should prescribe hemostatic agents. You can take medicinal decoctions and tinctures on the basis of nettle, chamomile and calendula. Ready dried grass roots can be purchased at any pharmacy. It is necessary to ensure that the discharge is scanty, and has a slightly reddish tint.
If after the procedure, the bleeding does not stop, but only increases, then surgery will be needed. The main thing – do not hesitate, but as soon as possible to seek help from a gynecologist, who conducted cauterization.
So, in the first three weeks after cauterization of erosion, scant blood flow is quite normal. In order not to disrupt the menstrual cycle, treatment is prescribed immediately after menstruation. At the time of healing you need to abandon physical exertion and sexuality. At the slightest deviations and pain, you should consult with your doctor.
