Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is characterized by an infection of the reproductive organs; sometimes the disease is not associated with any symptoms. In other cases, when a women develops PID, she may experience abdominal and pelvic pain, an increase in vaginal discharge that becomes odorous, irregular menstrual cycles, lower back pain, pain during sexual intercourse, fatigue, and pain during urination. If left untreated, the condition can cause fallopian tube scarring and obstructions, which make it more difficult to become pregnant or lead to tubal pregnancies.
PID and Your Fallopian Tubes
An infection of the reproductive organs can cause your fallopian tubes to become inflamed or obstructed by scar tissue, especially if the PID condition persists for a long period of time without treatment. When the tubes are blocked, an egg released from your ovary cannot make its way through the fallopian tube to be fertilized by sperm. The end result is that you have an issue with infertility. In other cases, the sperm will make its way up the fallopian tube and will fertilize the egg while it is still inside your tube instead of in your uterus. The fertilized egg will then attach itself to the wall of your fallopian tube, and you can end up with a tubal pregnancy. A tubal or ectopic pregnancy cannot be carried to term and can threaten your life. If you suspect that you have an ectopic pregnancy, seek out medical assistance immediately.
In “Smart Medicine for Healthier Living: Practical A-Z Reference to Natural and Conventional Treatments for Adults”, Janet Zand, Allan N. Spreen, and James B. LaValle cite Apis as a treatment for PID. Apis can help treat burning and discomfort on the right side of the abdomen and abdominal swelling associated with PID and can help restore ovarian and fallopian tube health. Take Apis 30x, a medium potency remedy, for a period of three days. Dissolve four tablets under your tongue with each dose.
Janet Zand, et al., also cite Arsenicum album as a treatment for PID. This treatment may improve the condition of your reproductive organs, as well as alleviate any restlessness and anxiety you might be experiencing. This homeopathic treatment is also offered to alleviate diarrhea. Consume 30x of Arsenicum album, a medium potency remedy, three times a day. Dissolve four tablets under your tongue with each dose. Continue the treatment for three days time.
Belladonna is recommended for the treatment of PID symptoms, abdominal cramping, and overheated sensations. Take Belladonna to alleviate restlessness and anxiety. Consume 30x of Belladonna, a medium potency remedy, and dissolve 4 tablets under your tongue three times a day. Continue the treatment for three days to alleviate PID conditions.
