A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
I had a question the other day about pelvic inflammatory disease.
Pelvic inflammatory disease, or PID, is an infection of a woman’s reproductive organs.
Treating PID right away is important, because PID can cause scar tissue in your pelvic organs and lead to infertility.
It can also cause other problems, like pelvic pain and tubal pregnancy.
PID is caused by bacteria entering your reproductive organs through your cervix.
When your cervix is infected, bacteria from your vagina can more easily get into and infect your uterus and fallopian tubes.
You’re more likely to get PID if you:
>Have a sexually transmitted disease (STD). The most common causes of PID are gonorrhea and chlamydia.
>Are at risk for STDs. If you’re young and don’t use condoms when you have sex, you’re more likely to get STDs. Having more than one sex partner also increases your risk for STDs.
>Have bacterial vaginosis.
>Have recently had an IUD inserted or had an abortion.
>Have had PID before.
At first, PID may not cause any symptoms.
Or it may cause only mild symptoms, like bleeding or discharge from your vagina.
Some women don’t even know they have it.
They only find out later, when they can’t get pregnant or they have pelvic pain.
As the infection spreads, the most common symptom is pain in your lower belly.
The pain has been described as crampy or as a dull and constant ache.
It may be worse during sex, during bowel movements, or when you urinate.
Some women also have a fever.
Even when PID causes mild or no symptoms, it can still cause serious problems.
If your infection was caused by a sexually transmitted disease, your sex partner(s) will also need to be treated so you don’t get infected again.
Don’t have sex until both of you have finished your treatment.
And be sure to follow up to make sure the treatment is working.
To deal with pelvic inflammatory disease it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Increase your exercise, relaxation techniques, etc.
*Increase essential fats (flax oil, olive oil, Omega-3 oils).
