Worms in the uterus, can parasites get into the vagina?
Helminthiasis is a very dangerous pathology because of the late detection of parasitic infestation and possible consequences for the individual. The symptoms of the activity of the worms, found in women, have specific features.
Among the inhabitants it is widely believed that worms develop only in the digestive system. It is not, among the 280 species of worms are species that live in almost all organs, including the heart, lungs, brain, circulatory system.
Can of worms to get into the vagina?
It is possible, for pinworm, causes enterobiasis. They lay their eggs in the folds of the anus. Due to such physiological characteristics of the female body, as the short distance between the anus and the vagina ahead of, worms can easily overcome this obstacle. The vagina pinworm can lay eggs and parasitize the mucosa. This contributes to the imbalance of acid-alkaline environment, which protects him in normal healthy women.
The bot is not always possible to determine, seeing in the feces of the parasite or its larvae and eggs. In the study of medical history, the doctor will pay special attention to indirect manifestations of helminthic infestation. Symptoms of helminthiasis:
- Anemia – competitors of man for the absorption of nutrients lead to lower blood hemoglobin;
- Allergic dermatitis, asthma, increased lacrimation – toxic waste products of the parasites result in allergic reactions, increase in the number of white blood cells;
- Alternating constipation and diarrhea – the accumulation of worms in the digestive system can cause constipation, and the desire of body toxins leads to diarrhea;
- Bloating parasites in the intestine stimulate flatulence;
- Sleep disturbances, constant fatigue, apathy, depression caused due to lack of nutrients;
- Nervousness and irritability;
- Itching in the anus;
- Headache – the consequence of intoxication;
- The decrease in body mass.
Do not have to present all these symptoms. It all depends on the type of worms, their stage of development and prevalence of parasites in the body.
The danger of worms
Uninvited neighbors significantly reduce the quality of life of women with helminthic infestation. Particularly dangerous helminth larvae, which can spread by the bloodstream throughout the body.
The risk of helminthiasis:
- The risk of intestinal obstruction due to the accumulation of parasites;
- Reduced immunity, danger of infection due to depression of immunoglobulin;
- The formation of cysts and other accumulations of larvae of worms of the type of cyst in the brain, lungs, liver;
- The defeat of the walls of the intestine, causing bleeding, ulcers, inflammation of its walls (colitis);
- Vitamin deficiency and lack the comfort needed for the body elements;
- Disorders of the digestive system.
The defeat of the reproductive system
Women are very vulnerable when infected by worms, because under their influence may begin functional changes of the uterus, vagina and ovaries. Lowered immunity provokes the start of the pathogenic processes that healthy women could not appear. Compromising the integrity of the mucous membranes, blood vessels and tissues of the body, the worms facilitate penetration into the blood and genitals of bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Helminths (Schistosoma) provoke the appearance of tumors in the uterus and the vagina, on the cervix of the uterus and appendages. Polyps, endometritis, menstrual disorders, the spread of chlamydia, Ureaplasma, and the accession of secondary infection without the influence of helminths would not have been so actively developed.
A special place is the harm caused by parasites in pregnancy. Women, being infected with helminthiasis, wondered if worms can harm an unborn baby. Most helminths are not able to pass through the placental barrier and cause direct harm to the fetus. However, the General condition of pregnant women is deteriorating, and the vulnerability of the body in this period leads to the further spread of worm infestation. The unborn child receives less nutrients, disrupting the formation of organs and systems of the fetus.
There is a minimal, but still tangible risk that the worms in the womb and in breast milk can be detected, having got there via the blood and lymphatic system. It is the larvae of Schistosoma circulating from organ to organ in this way. The eggs of this parasite, are equipped with special spikes, small adult size make this way of getting into the reproductive organs is possible.
A yeast infection because of the worms
The reason for the appearance of thrush, or vaginal candidiasis the fungus Candida albicans, always present in women in the vagina and in the digestive tract. Its rapid development, bringing a lot of discomfort, the fungus starts by combining several factors. One of them is a sharp decline in immunity, General debility of the body. Worm infestation never takes place unnoticed for women. The decrease in the organism necessary macro — and micronutrients, vitamins, imbalance of nutrients weakens the immune response. The fungus, without opposition, rapidly reproduce, increasing the frequency of recurrence of fungal infection.
For treatment of worm infestation you definitely need to consult with an infectious diseases doctor or helminthologia. The specialist will select the right remedy will take into account contraindications and the side effects of drugs. To monitor the effectiveness of treatment, it is necessary to conduct laboratory research in certain periods of life of the worms.
It is possible that these analyses will have to carry out repeatedly, as some types of parasites eggs can get into the feces only during the period of sexual maturity, up to this point their presence in the body is difficult to determine. Not all carriers of helminthic infestations are resolved on conservative therapy, preferring self-treatment with traditional medicine (tansy, garlic, pumpkin seed milk, etc.). This approach can bring a lot of harm to health, as not all folk remedies effective, and to monitor the effectiveness of treatment without tests is very difficult.
The selection of effective means produces only a physician based on history and laboratory findings.
Effective tools for different types of helminthiasis
- Flat worms (trematodes-flukes cause opisthorchiasis).
Biltricid, TESOL, Drouet, Praziquantel — drugs disrupt the carbohydrate metabolism of worms, damage the cell membranes in the tissues of parasites eluted calcium ions. Means take for 2 days in 3 doses, interval between them equal to 4-6 hours. Contraindications – pregnancy, lactation. Side effects – epigastric pain, in the muscles, utricaria rash, hyperthermia. The optimal dose of from 30 to 60-75 mg/kg.
- Lentetsy and tsepni (flat worms, cause cestodes and difillobotrioz).
The male fern extract – has properties of muscle toxin for parasites, paralyzing their muscles, making it difficult to attach to the muscle wall. Due to peristalsis of the intestinal worms are excreted through the anus. Before taking extract the limit diet calorie, laxative for 30 minutes before taking put a cleansing enema of parasites. Side effects: vomiting, collapse, toxic hepatitis, diarrhea, stimulation of uterine contractions. Contraindications: pregnancy, lactation, anemia, liver and kidney failure, children’s age till 2 years.

At night I take a dose in combination with sodium bicarbonate, in the morning half of the dose. The patient observes a light diet, taking a laxative is not required. The effectiveness of Fenasala increases while taking choleretic drugs like Holenzim, Allohol or extract of male fern. Contraindications: heart or liver failure.
Tykveol, a substance that medicines relax the muscles of the parasite, and then cause them to contracture. Losing motor activity of the worms are expelled from the body by waves of peristalsis. Effective use of tools in combination with the extract of male fern.
Dichlorophen – destroys epithelial tissue parasites, causing paralysis of their musculature and death. Take concurrently with Fenasalom. There is a drug where those funds are connected still in the process of production of medicines – Diclosed. Contraindications: cardiac, renal, hepatic failure, pregnancy, breastfeeding. Side effects: diarrhea, hives, nausea, stomach pain.
Aminoakrihin – used in between the treatment the main drugs in cycles of 3-4 days with intervals of 5-6 days.
- Ascarids (round worms, cause nematodes) and pinworms (enterobiasis cause).
Dekaris paralyzes the muscles of worms. Applied once, if necessary, you can repeat the treatment after a week. Contraindications: pregnancy, renal and hepatic failure.
Vermoxum or Mebendazole – affects the cellular metabolism of the parasites, causing degeneration of cells. When treatment with these drugs should avoid drinking alcohol, pregnancy is an absolute contraindication.
Pyrantel, Helmintox, Combatin blocks the nerve endings of the parasite acts on larvae and adults. Side effects: diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, headache, abdominal pain. Contraindications: pregnancy. When enterobiasis treatment is recommended to be repeated after 2 weeks.
Piperazine paralyzes helminth muscle, it is excreted in the faeces. Contraindications: pregnancy, diseases of the Central nervous system, kidney and liver failure, epilepsy.
To minimize the possibility of infection with parasites is sufficient compliance with the simplest rules of hygiene:
- Eating meat and fish only after quality cooking;
- Do not use water from sources that are not trust worthy, always boil it;
- Thoroughly wash vegetables, fruits, herbs;
- Do not swim in polluted waters, especially near pastures or livestock watering;
- To destroy insects are possible vectors of eggs of worms;
- In a timely manner to conduct deworming of their Pets;
- Frequently wash hands before eating, after using the toilet, work in the garden or in the garden, cleaning.
If you suspect that a bot ill someone from the family members, you need to conduct laboratory tests, if necessary – concurrent prophylactic deworming as recommended by the doctor. In all cases, self-treatment of helminthiasis is unacceptable.
