Clinical picture of cystitis
The main symptoms of ailment are frequent urge to urinate, including at night. A woman feels burning and stinging throughout the entire process of emptying the bladder or just at the end. Urination itself is accompanied by the release of a small amount of urine. Its characteristics also change: the urine becomes turbid, impurities of blood appear in it, an unpleasant putrefactive smell.
It is very difficult to endure when a woman wants to go to the toilet, because the sphincter of the urethra weakens. There may be pain in the suprapubic region. It increases with the filling of the bladder. Symptom of cystitis may be weakness and fever.
The severity of the signs of the disease in different women may differ. But whatever the manifestations of this urological disease in women after childbirth, the doctor must necessarily appear. Indeed, neglected cystitis can be transformed into inflammation of the kidneys (pyelonephritis). And its main manifestations are high temperature (38-39 А C), low back pain, chills. Having found out these symptoms of pyelonephritis on the background of cystitis, you should seek medical help as soon as possible.
Treatment of cystitis after childbirth with breastfeeding
As a rule, a clinical blood test, a general urine analysis, and a Nechiporenko method are used for an accurate determination. Women also undergo ultrasound examination, which will show the thickening of the walls of the bladder and the heterogeneous structure of its contents in cystitis. Sometimes for its diagnosis, cystoscopy is used.
Diet with this urological ailment is aimed at reducing the irritation of the walls of the bladder. In principle, its bases correspond to the rules of nutrition during lactation. From the diet of a woman, it is necessary to exclude salty and spicy dishes, marinated and smoked, fried and fatty. It is necessary to temporarily forget about the rich broths, ready-made shop sauces, half-finished products and alcohol. Cystitis requires compliance with the drinking regime and even its intensification. By "washing" the body, the woman helps wash away from it pathogenic bacteria, causative agents of cystitis. It is better to drink ordinary water, because, for example, a cranberry juice that is useful to non-crusty women can cause an allergy in a baby.
Selecting drugs for the treatment of cystitis in lactating women, you must choose those that do not require the interruption of breastfeeding. So, for example, in this situation cephalosporins and penicillins, nitrofurans and macrolides will not do. Usually, nursing mothers recommend the use of herbal medicines for the treatment of cystitis. Excellent drugs themselves have this category - Kanefron and Phytolysin. They contain extracts from medicinal plants that have a beneficial effect on the work of the urinary tract, relieve the inflammatory process and relieve the signs of cystitis. On average, cystitis after childbirth is treated with such medicines for 2-3 weeks. It is very important not to stop therapy, feeling relief in a few days. It is necessary to go through the entire course of therapy to the end, in order to avoid the transition of the acute form of the urological illness into a chronic one.
After birth, local thermal procedures are counter-indicative, that is, hot-water bottles on the stomach or sessile baths. Such manipulations can lead to the discovery of bleeding. The best treatment, and even more so for lactating women, is prevention. Therefore, to prevent the development of cystitis, it is necessary to empty the bladder in a timely manner, carefully observe the intimate hygiene, pre-treat chronic diseases, and change the sanitary napkins more often.
