Diagnosing a urinary tract infection
A urinary tract infection, due to its frequencyand significant influence on pathology of human development, constitutes one ofthe most serious diagnostic and clinic problems in obstetrics and gynaecology. The most frequent urinary tract infections are the following: chlamydiosis, mycoplasmosis, trichomoniasis, gonorrhoea and thrush. Additionally, the most common urinary tract infection is caused by viruses such as HSV, CMV, or HPV. Generally, urinary tract infections are spread by sexually transmitted diseases, therefore those who change their sexual partners quite frequently, are at high risk. The infections are accompanied by the following: use of contraceptives, antibiotic therapy, immunocompromised state and certain diseases ( e.g. diabetes, cancer). Moreover, pregnant women are more prone to these types of infections.
Advances in medicine as well as development of new and fast laboratory techniques allow currently to diagnose efficiently the early stages of microbiological infections. It’s worth undergoing these examinations for the sake of our own psychological comfort and in order to ensure health of the future mother and unborn offspring.
PAP smear, the affected area or urine are the materials to carry out tests. Remember - unpleasant odour, discomfort caused by the lack of control over our body, necessity of continuous use of panty liners, sexual issues - they are treatable, the only thing is to make a step forward.
