New data shows that 60%-80% of women (of childbearing age) suffer from different degrees of cervical erosion. Plus, it is estimated that more than half who seek gynaecological care suffer from it.
The cervix is composed of squamous epithelium and columnar epithelium (inner neck). The delicate columnar epithelium is susceptible to infection. When chronic inflammation occurs, the cervical columnar epithelium shifts. Due to the thinness of the columnar epithelium, doctors may peer through the underlying capillary and red stroma to check for a “red zone” and a clear boundary with the surrounding squamous epithelium, which is cervical erosion.
Experts think that there is a correlation between cervical erosion and cervical cancer. Cervical erosion patients are 10 times more likely to develop cervical cancer than normal women. Therefore, cervical erosion should not be taken lightly.
1. It can be caused by a variety of factors like sexual intercourse, bacterial infections and inappropriate vaginal medication and other factors.
2. Mild cervical erosion causes no apparent discomfort. It can be discovered during a gynecological survey or physical examination. However, moderate and severe cervical erosion can cause increased vaginal discharge and itchy genitalia. At times, the patient may face bleeding or irregular vaginal bleeding may occur after sexual intercourse and increased urinary frequency. When the inflammation spreads to the pelvic cavity, lumbosacralgia, abdominal bulge and dysmenorrhea can also occur. Sexual intercourse and bowel movements may make the symptoms worse.
If vaginitis is not cured or treated in time, it can cause the recurrence of other gynecological diseases including cervicitis. Women who have suffered from vaginitis for a long time have a weakened immune system weakened, making them more sensitive to inflammatory substances.
As acute cervicitis virus moves upward, it can cause urinary tract infections and inflammation of the urinary tract organs. Patients with cervicitis may face urinary urgency and increased secretion in the early stage. As cervical inflammation has become a very common gynecological disease, it is important to understand the early symptoms of cervicitis, the disease and learn more about the treatment options available.
There are two types of cervicitis: a) acute cervicitis and b) chronic cervicitis.
Acute cervicitis is mainly caused by an unhealthy sex life and is often accompanied by bacterial infections such as Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Patients with acute cervicitis experienced vaginal discharge and mucopurulent and increased bleeding during menstrual period. If the urinary system is infected, the patient may be experience increased urinary frequency, pain and dysuria.
Acute cervicitis can develop into chronic cervicitis. However, chronic cervicitis can also be caused by secretion, abortion and cervical infection after surgery.
Once cervicitis develops and is not treated promptly, it may cause infertility in women and cancer. Hence, it is crucial to get timely and effective treatment.
