What is pelvic inflammatory disease? It is infection of the female reproductive system, which includes uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix. It occurs due to sexually transmitted infection like Chlamydia or gonorrhea. It can present itself with lower abdominal pain, heavy offensive smelling leucorrhoea, burning in urination, fever, painful intercourse, irregular menses. In some cases there may be vomiting also.
Risk factors for PID: 1. Multiple parteners or having sex with more than one partener.
COMPLICATIONS: if left untreated, it can lead to infertility, ectopic pregnancy.
Prevention is always better than cure. It can be prevented by using condoms, maintain personal hygiene .
HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT: Homeopathic medicines can be prescribed after evaluating the cause of PID and medicine is prescribed on the basis of similarity of symptoms.
Aconite rank top when there is high fever with inflammation of ovaries or uterus caused due to sudden check of menstrual flow or from checked perspiration. While apis works well when there is burning stinging pain in abdomen and intercourse is painful.
Arsenic is best suited when there is burning urination with burning sensation in the female reproductive system. However I have also seen good results with conium, sepia, lachesis , grapites, silicea etc. when prescribed on the totality of symptoms.
