Recently, the term “commercial diagnoses” has appeared in medicine, i.e., diagnoses, which, as a rule, are not associated with severe diseases, but are dictated by the desire of dishonest doctors to impose excessive treatment on the patient.
Myth 1. Urea-plasma needs to be treated.
In the overwhelming majority of cases, the diagnosis and treatment of urea-plasmas and mycoplasmas are not needed: these microorganisms can generally exist in the genital tract of men and women without causing any diseases. They are also called “transient” flora, that is, it may be present in the genital tract for some time and then disappear on its own. These microorganisms can rarely be responsible for the development of certain pathological conditions (urethritis in men, asymptomatic frequent urination in women), but only after excluding all other causes of disease.
Myth 2. Cervical erosion should be treated
Cervical erosion should be cauterized only in two cases: if you have bleeding after intercourse or there is an excess amount of normal white, odorless discharge. In all other cases, cauterization of erosion is not required.
Myth 3. Hormonal contraceptives are harmful to women's health.
Hormonal contraception in addition to the most reliable method of protection from unwanted pregnancy also provides prevention of most gynecological diseases. WHO conducted an extensive study of the non-contraceptive effects of hormonal contraceptives between two groups of women: the first took contraceptives for five years, the second did not make these drugs.
Myth 4. Uterine myoma must be removed along with the uterus
Removal of the uterus is the most common treatment for uterine fibroids. However, in the vast more significant part of cases, uterine myoma can be treated by gynecology treatment hospitals in India without removing the entire organ: there is an effective non-surgical treatment - uterine artery embolization, which can be an alternative to uterus removal.
Myth 5. HPV (Human Papillomavirus) must be treated
It is not necessary to carry out drug treatment of human papillomavirus since there is not a single drug that effectively affects this virus. In our country, as a rule, various immunomodulatory drugs, local interferons, and other means are used, which supposedly should strengthen the immune response to this virus and help the body to cope with it.
Myth 6. Gynecological ultrasound should be performed strictly on the 4th-5th day of the cycle.
Time for an ultrasound is determined by the purpose for which the ultrasound is performed. If gynecology treatment hospitals need to perform ultrasound after menstruation, it is correct to carry it out when the bleeding stops completely, since in some women on the 4th-5th day of the discharge cycle they may still be present, and they make it difficult to assess the condition of the uterine mucosa. Therefore, ultrasound should always be done in the absence of bleeding (except for cases of unusual duration or occurrence outside of menstruation).
Myth 7. Immuno-modulators contribute to the treatment of many diseases.
For the successful treatment of gynecological diseases are not needed: immunomodulators, interferons, vitamins, dietary supplements, hepato-protectors, as well as tools for restoring the intestinal flora and vagina.
