Cervix and uterus infections from the point of view of Ayurveda
Infections of the cervix (the end of the uterus) and uterus rarely cause symptoms, but if they do, symptoms may include abnormal vaginal discharge, painful intercourse, or irritation of the vulva or vagina. Cervix and uterus infections are very common. Women who engage in high-risk sexual behaviors and have multiple partners are at a higher risk.
There are many causes of cervix infections that may be acute or chronic. An infection usually causes acute problem. Chronic is more likely from a noninfectious cause.
Cervix and uterus infections can result from introducing staphylococcus or streptococcus bacteria into the uterus. The sexually transmitted diseases chlamydia and gonorrhea are also significant causes of infections. Herpes simplex virus, Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma genitalium are also sometimes a cause.
Noninfectious causes of cervicitis include exposure to chemicals or mechanical irritation, including:
- Chemical irritation from spermicides, douches, or latex condoms
- Reaction to diaphragms, cervical caps, tampons, or pessaries inserted
- Radiation therapy or systemic inflammatory diseases
Ayurveda considers the reason of cervical and uterine infections to be an imbalance of Kapha and Pitta doshas. Kapha dosha increases with the spread of toxin blocking properties in the body, which shows the need for body cleansing procedures.
