    A modern woman pays a lot of attention to her family, work, but often forgets about her health, postponing the consultation of a gynecologist for an indefinite period. Such recklessness often becomes the cause of common gynecological diseases, which at first glance may seem harmless, but in fact are dangerous complications and provoke other pathologies of the female reproductive system.

    Neglecting one’s health can lead to infertility or the development of cancerous diseases that could pose a threat to your life. These are the top three reasons patients visit a gynecologist:

    Cervical erosion

    Ovarian cyst

    endometriosis.

    These pathologies are dangerous because they can be asymptomatic at the beginning of their development, claiming that they only experience pain or other clinical signs in later stages. This is a dangerous feature in a woman’s life. These diseases are they?

    Cervical erosion

    Among the large list of gynecological diseases, cervical erosion is the most common pathology. It affects more than 40% of women, with half of those who experience it being under 30 years old. Sometimes, the patient discovers that a problem exists by accident.

    Every woman should have a 2 year preventive exam by a gynecologist. Some representatives of the “fairer sex” ignore this advice and only visit the doctor when there is already pain, discharge or other symptoms.

    Even in advanced stages of cervix erosion, it is not felt. This is damage to the mucous layer of the uterus, which does not have nerve endings, and accordingly, the woman does not experience any painful sensations. If the patient is suffering from human papillomavirus, the problem becomes even more complicated. Against this background, erosion can quickly turn into an oncological stage – cancer. This is what you should be thinking about when rescheduling an examination by a gynecologist at a more convenient time. All other things, except health, can be put off until later.

    Ovarian cyst

    Cysts are a non-cancerous fluid-filled growth. If the cyst isn’t treated and diagnosed promptly, it can become a malignant tumor.

    The development of cystic neoplasms is facilitated by abortion, complicated labor, hormonal disorders, oophoritis – inflammation of the ovaries. Treatment of a cyst is based on taking medications, under the influence of which it can disappear in 2 months. Such a prognosis is possible for a disease in the initial stage of development.

    A neglected ovarian cyst threatens to rupture the organ, so it requires immediate surgical removal. It is noteworthy that, as with erosion of the cervix, with an ovarian cyst in the initial stage, symptoms may be absent. This pathology can be accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen and vaginal discharges of a different nature or color.

    Endometriosis

    Endometriosis is the most serious of all the diseases in the gynecological field. Because the causes of endometriosis are still unknown, it is complex and requires a multi-faceted treatment plan. Endometriosis is characterized by the growth of the inner layer of the uterus, which goes beyond the anatomical limits, growing into adjacent organs and tissues.

    The symptoms of endometriosis are similar to those of other gynecological diseases, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, and an accurate diagnosis can only be made in a clinic. After noticing the symptoms, it is important for a woman to make an appointment with a doctor immediately.

    frequent or persistent pelvic pain;

    menstrual irregularities;

    painful periods;

    prolonged and profuse bleeding.

    Unfortunately, it is impossible to completely cure endometriosis, but adequate hormonal therapy, prescribed in a timely manner, will stop the process and reduce the localization of growth. Surgery is necessary in extreme cases to save the life of a woman and allow her to become pregnant.
