Hirudotherapy in Gynecology
Widespread use of synthetic hormones and antibiotic therapy, the problems of environmental toxins, and stress have led to the rapid spread of diseases affecting female genitalia.
These disorders often develop in conjunction with other chronic diseases, especially hypothyroidism, which complicates the course of these diseases.
Hirudotherapy has a powerful effect by reducing the load on the pelvic organs, preventing stagnation and inflammation. Hirudotherapy also has an immune-modulating effect.
Pain and discomfort in the abdomen, and genital itching generally disappear after the first session. After three or four months of treatment, we see a return to a normal menstrual cycle. We also see that pregnancy occurs in a previously infertile women.
There is a list of gynecological diseases for which hirudotherapy is helpful: chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, menstrual irregularities, adenomyosis (uterine thickening that occurs when endometrial tissue, which normally lines the uterus, moves into the outer muscular walls of the uterus), endometrial hyperplasia, functional ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, some forms of infertility, menopausal syndrome, inflammatory diseases of the pelvic organs including viral and bacterial infections.
