For most of us, the psychological attitude is as follows: until it hurts (or while it hurts, but you can endure), it is better to “wait out” any sore. Visiting a doctor is expensive, and often there is no time.
And we usually go to the gynecologist when alarming symptoms appear, neglecting regular preventive examinations. However, in the event that, God forbid, you have cervical erosion, a female doctor should be visited regularly.

What a terrible diagnosis — “cervical erosion?”
The cervix is a kind of entrance to the uterus, which does not allow infection to enter. In its normal state, it is covered with smooth, even, pale pink skin. The diagnosis of “cervical erosion” means that the pink cylindrical epithelium, which is located inside the cervix, has come to its surface. The doctor can see the signs of this disease with just one gynecological mirror.
Many girls and women, after listening to the doctor’s recommendations and his explanations, decide that erosion is just a wound, and after drinking a course of prescribed medications, they forget about this problem. The wound means it will heal.
What is fraught with this disease?
But if erosion is not cured and the condition of the cervix is not monitored, the protection of the uterus from infections is reduced. As a result, there is a risk of earning inflammation of the cylindrical epithelium and cervical dysplasia — and the latter can develop into cervical cancer in a few years. 6 women die from this type of malignant tumor in Ukraine every day!
How to identify the disease?
The disease can be detected by examination and cytological analysis. As a rule, cervical erosion and dysplasia do not bother a woman, and she does not know anything.
Why does erosion occur?
At the same time, getting infected with a virus that causes erosion is easier than a lung. It is carried — and these are strains of the human papillomavirus — by men in whom this does not manifest itself at all. HPV, multiplying, leads to cervical erosion, which in turn transforms into dysplasia.
Medical treatment is a must!
Erosion of the cervix is prenatal and postnatal.
After treatment prescribed by a gynecologist, with prenatal erosion, an annual examination and cytological analysis is sufficient.
With postpartum (traumatic) erosion, the doctor will most likely prescribe cauterization: using electric current, liquid nitrogen, or a laser. After this procedure, the skin of the problem area heals, and the woman is considered healthy.
