Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Ayurvedic Treatment

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is the single most frequent serious infection encountered by women. It is an infection of reproductive organs of a woman, where in there is an ascending infection from the cervix to the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and the surrounding structures. PID afflicts more than 1 million women each year in the US and generates annual health care costs of approximately 4.2 billion dollars. It is responsible for nearly 250,000 hospitalizations per year.

A patient suffering from PID may have any of the following symptoms:

-Lower abdominal pain
-Back pain
-Abnormal terine bleeding
-Unusual or heavy vaginal discharge
-Vaginal odor
-Painful urination
-Painful sexual intercourse

Certain symptoms that are not related to the reproductive system may also occur like fever, nausea and vomiting. It is often observed that the symptoms worsen at the end of the menstrual period and the first few days after the menstrual period.

Over a period of time, PID can have serious effects on a woman’s reproductive health. Several long-term sequelae have been clearly associated with this disease like:

a Ectopic pregnancy rates are 12-15% higher in women who have had an episode ofpelvic inflammatory disease.
aTubal occlusion with infertility occurs at a rate of 12-50% in these patients, increasing with each episode of pelvic inflammatory disease.
aChronic pelvic pain has been associated with pelvic inflammatory disease at an incidence as high as 18% after a single episode of the disease.

  2. QUESTION:
    Why am I bleeding heavy after uterine abalation surgery. I had uterine fibroids and the surgery has not helpe?
    I had surgery back in September and start bleeding about a week ago…heavier than normal why is this?

    • ANSWER:
      My wife had the same problem after treatment for fibroids.Your uterus has lost it’s lining from the surgery and is bleeding heavier,because the blood vessels are closer to the surface.Give it a month or two to regain the tissue that was scraped out and see your doctor if you feel faint or light headed from the blood loss.Once you have surgury,it can take weeks for it to heal.Try to rest as much as possible.

  3. QUESTION:
    Uterine fibroids, pain, heavy bleeding and irregular periods?
    I have multiple large and small fibroids, severe endometriosis, severe adhesions (they thought I’d had chemo). I used to have very regular periods but they are now irregular and heavy with a long pms time around when I expect a period. I was getting one heavy one about every other month having to change pads every 15 minutes for one day of it. And a lighter one in between with alot of spotting. But sometimes I can have pms symptoms like I’m starting and not start for a couple weeks. (They say it’s inoperable.) Is this common? What should I be worried about? What can I do?

    • ANSWER:
      I had this same problem in 2005, I experienced heavy bleeding and it continued for about a week, quit with just spotting and then back to bleeding again. This was so bad it put me in a very weak state and finally decided to visit obgyn and had blood test and ultra sound done. I was so low on blood that I had to have 4 pints replaced due to so much blood loss. The ultra sound showed a fibroid tumor. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy in September 2005 and the tumor removed. The fibroid tumor was causing the main problem for me, making my periods unbearable. Now I feel fine health wise, my blood count is back up, but of course I went straight to menopause, but I’m handling it the best I can. I wish you luck, have your blood checked for anemia and an ultra sound to see where and how large the fibroids are.
