Don’t mistake pelvic inflammatory disease for dysmenorrhea

  Ms. Chen, 47, is married and not pregnant. I have been married for more than 20 years and have had abdominal pain every month before and after menstruation and menstruation, and every time the pain is unbearable. She received fluid infusion at the local health center to relieve her symptoms. Until the end of last year, Ms. Chen’s abdominal pain symptoms significantly worsened before and after each menstruation. In a hurry, her family sent her to the hospital for detailed examination.
  ”The symptoms of this patient are typical chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, weak spleen and stomach, internal resistance to dampness and blood stasis, coupled with a long course of disease, leading to chronic illnesses and multiple stasis. Qi deficiency is the root of its occurrence and development.” The doctor said that after pelvic inflammatory disease has become chronic, antibiotic treatment often does not work well. At this time, you can try Chinese medicine.
  Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the “inflammation” of pelvic inflammation mainly includes four types: stagnation of qi, blood stasis, cold and dampness, and damp heat. Therefore, treatment should not only focus on clearing away heat and removing dampness, but should focus on manpower in the aspects of relieving the cardinal, strengthening the body’s body and removing blood stasis, and warming the meridians. The doctor prescribed traditional Chinese medicine based on Ms. Chen’s physical condition and the cause of her illness. After half a month, Ms. Chen’s menstrual abdominal pain symptoms have been relieved to a certain extent. Two months later, the abdominal pain basically disappeared.
  Acute pelvic inflammatory disease can be treated with western medicine for anti-infective treatment, and it can be taken orally, enema or externally with Chinese medicine to reduce sequelae. In the chronic phase, the patient’s physique is often weak. The most common method of external treatment of Chinese medicine is Chinese medicine enema. Many people are unfamiliar with this therapy, but in fact, compared with oral Chinese medicine, rectal perfusion on the one hand reduces the toxic effect of the drug on the liver and kidney, on the other hand, the drug can be absorbed directly to the pelvic cavity through the intestinal wall, and the effect is better. .

For longer duration of the disease, some patients may have symptoms of neurasthenia, such as lack of energy, general discomfort, and insomnia. When patients have poor resistance, they are prone to acute or subacute attacks.
  Abdominal discomfort, scar adhesion and pelvic congestion caused by chronic inflammation can cause lower abdomen swelling, pain, and lumbosacral soreness. It often worsens after fatigue, after sexual intercourse and before and after menstruation.
