A lot of medical conditions can affect a woman’s uterus (womb) and cause great pain, such as polyps, endometriosis, fibroids, and cancer.
Uterine pain or discomfort is usually felt at the pelvic and lower abdominal region, and it often spreads to the mid-abdomen or lower back.
Accompanying symptoms of different uterine conditions are the same and may include irregular menstrual bleeding and difficulty getting pregnant, so it is very important to see a doctor to find out exactly what is affecting you.
Some concerns are very
serious, but others are not.
Many women damage their wombs through intentional or unconscious means. There are some foods that we consume or habits that unknowingly harm the womb. In this post, I intend to present you with the prevalent signs and symptoms of a compromised uterus.
Before we begin, let us talk about the factors that lead to infertility.-
Age: The amount and quality of the egg of a woman begins to decline with growing age. In the mid-30s, the rate of follicle deterioration accelerates, leading to lower and less-quality eggs. This makes pregnancy very stressful and it raises the risk of miscarriage.
– Smoking: In addition to damaging the cervix and fallopian tubes, smoking is thought to increase the chances of miscarriage. It also makes your ovaries mature steadily and depletes your eggs.
– Weight: By being overweight or underweight, natural ovulation may be affected. Having a healthy and fit body increases the occurrence of ovulation and the probability of pregnancy.
— Sexually transmitted infections and alcohol: sexually transmitted viruses impair the womb, thus halting conception. Heavy intake of alcohol frequently effects the womb.
Below are some of the Signs of a Damaged Womb:
Pain in the uterine region
Abnormal or heavy vaginal bleeding
Irregular menstrual cycle
Abnormal vaginal discharge
Pain in the pelvis, lower abdomen or rectal area
Increased menstrual cramping
Pain during intercourse
Bleeding after intercourse
Constipation; discomfort during a bowel movement
Recurrent bladder infections
Here is how to go about it if you have these symptoms:
The right treatment for your uterine condition depends on the cause. Medication, hormonal therapies, surgery, or other procedures may be necessary.
Antibiotics: An infection such as pelvic inflammatory disease requires antibiotic treatment.10
Hormonal treatment: Endometriosis is often treated with medications, such as hormonal contraceptives, to reduce symptoms.27 Similarly, endometrial hyperplasia, dysmenorrhea, and menorrhagia may be treated with hormone therapy if symptoms are severe.
Embolization: Uterine fibroids can be treated with embolization, which is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces blood supply to the uterine tissue to shrink the fibroid. Polyps can also be managed with embolization, but usually do not require treatment.28
Surgery: Uterine prolapse can be treated surgically, and severe cases may need to be treated with a hysterectomy.29
Observation: Women who have congenital uterine malformation rarely need surgery, but often require close observation and care during pregnancy to reduce the chances of a miscarriage.30 A retrograde uterus rarely requires treatment but may require lifestyle strategies to manage urinary leaking if it occurs. Sometimes, a combination of treatment approaches may be needed, depending on the severity of the condition and whether it improves after the first treatment approach.
