Ureaplasmosis during pregnancy
Most often this infection is transmitted by sexualBy way of. But in some cases, ureaplasmosis can be transmitted from an infected mother to her child during pregnancy or during childbirth, after which the infection can be in the body of the child, until a certain point does not manifest itself.
Symptoms of ureaplasmosis During pregnancy
The period from the moment of infection inThe organism before the first manifestation of the disease can be from several days to six months. Microorganisms penetrate the human genitourinary system and there wait for the moment to strike. However, even after the end of the incubation period, the manifestations of infection may be absent, hardly noticeable, or resemble the manifestations of any other infections of the urinary tract of an inflammatory nature. Most often, such inconspicuous behavior from infection can be expected if it is in the body of a woman. In most cases, ureaplasmosis is diagnosed during examination for painful frequent urination, pain in the lower abdomen, infertility, vaginal discharge, etc.
Ureaplasmosis in pregnancy
Since at the moment there is no proven linkComplications of pregnancy with the presence of ureaplasma in the cervix, then mandatory examination for ureaplasma during pregnancy is not carried out. In America and Europe, healthy pregnant women are not tested for urea- and mycoplasmosis. This is possible only for research purposes, at the expense of the clinic.
On the territory of Russia there is a practice whenFor pregnant women, this examination is prescribed "additionally" (and for a fee), in many cases it is found ureaplasma, since for some women this is normal vaginal flora, and begin treatment, which consists in taking a course of antibiotics, prescribed to both a woman and her sexual partner . In some cases, antibiotics are taken together with immunomodulators. During the period of treatment it is recommended to refrain from sexual contacts.
However, antibiotics can only temporarily reduceThe number of microorganisms, so that even after several courses of treatment tests can show the same result. What makes us think about the advisability of such treatment, since antibiotics with side effects are unlikely to work well on the body during pregnancy.
In fact, if as a resultResearch was found only the strain Urealitikum (the same ureaplasma) and while the pregnant woman has no complaints, then the treatment is not required. It can be prescribed only if there is a combination of mycoplasmosis, chlamydia and ureaplasmosis, since in this case the infection can reach the amniotic fluid and the amniotic fluid, causing the corresponding problems, such as premature birth, amniotic fluid, fetal infection, E. The partner is also recommended to undergo a course of treatment, during which it is necessary to refrain from having sexual intercourse.
Treatment with detection of only one ureaplasmaCan be prescribed from the considerations that sometimes this infection can lead to the emergence of neonatal or congenital pneumonia (neonatal pneumonia develops in a child in the first month after birth, with a congenital child is born with a disease).
However, at the moment the medicine can not be exactlySay, who exactly from infected Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma hominis during pregnancy is at risk of having a baby with this or that type of pneumonia, and who does not. The very fact of the presence in the vagina of these microbes does not mean that the child will necessarily have pneumonia. Therefore, the study of pregnant women for ureaplasmosis and mycoplasmosis is not a justified measure, since absolutely all healthy children are born with the majority of pregnant women with Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma hominis.
