The microorganism ureaplasma can live for years in a female body without giving any signals and in no way showing itself. The main factor in the body's defense against this infection is the normal microflora, which acts as a physiological barrier.
Ureaplasmosis refers to infections that are latent and do not appear in any way for a long time. It is quite difficult to get rid of this infection, especially when it has already spread to the urinary tract and internal genital organs. Therefore, the treatment of ureaplasmosis should be prescribed only by a specialist and it should be monitored by laboratory tests.
When, after a thorough examination for the presence of ureaplasma infection, a woman has no signs of an inflammatory process, treatment is not carried out, this is due to the fact that this bacterium is a natural inhabitant of the mucous membranes of the female urogenital organs.
The peculiarity of the infection is that under certain conditions (severe physical as well as emotional stress, after suffering an acute illness, severe trauma), the carriage of a ureaplasma infection can turn into an inflammatory process. That is why there are situations when, when the carrier of ureaplasma is detected, its treatment is prescribed.
Treatment should be mandatory, complex, with the use of antibiotics: macrolides ("Sumamed", "Vilprafen") fluoroquinolones ("Ofloxacin", "Ciprofloxacin") and tetracyclines ("Doxycycline"), drugs that restore immunity. Also, if necessary, should be carried out: local treatment and physiotherapy procedures.
Comprehensive treatment must necessarily include adherence to a certain diet that excludes from the diet: spicy, smoked, salty foods, fatty meats, fried foods, sweets and alcohol. It is necessary to increase the amount of fermented milk products consumed, because they contribute to the restoration of intestinal microflora and, as a result, increase immunity.
To restore and maintain immunity, probiotics ("Probifor", "Atsilakt", "Linex") and prebiotics ("Laktusan") are prescribed, which are drugs that include certain colonies of bacteria (representatives of the intestinal microflora), as well as substances that promote their vital functions. They also use drugs that have a stimulating effect on the immune system and ("Vilozen", "Immunal").
Local treatment of ureaplasmosis in acute inflammatory process is not prescribed. If the disease is of a chronic form, baths with various anti-inflammatory substances are recommended, as well as vaginal suppositories with anti-inflammatory effects (Genferon, Hexicon).
