Know more about Cervical Erosion

Cervical erosion is a condition where squamous epithelium of the ectocervix is replaced by columnar epithelium which is continuous with the endocervix.

Cervix has different types of cells in the outside (vaginal portion) than it does on the inside (cervical canal). Normally, columnar epithelium cells are present inside of the cervix whereas squamous epithelial cells are present outside the cell. When the columnar cells appear on the outside of the cervix, they get in contact with the squamous cells and form a transformation zone. It appears as a red inflamed patch at the neck of the cervix.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Cervical Erosion

Cervical erosion and cervical fibroids are conditions that don’t have direct correlation to Ayurveda yet classics got references to similar conditions. Hence, Ayurveda points out Cervical erosion as Karnini Yoni vyapad. From the word Karnini, acarya refers to the protuberance of flesh. It is known to be caused due to aggravation of Vata- Kapha doshas. And classically this could be treated using Kapha alleviating diet and practises which we focus on at AyurVAID.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Ayurvedic treatments for cervical erosion ?
Classical texts refer to Kapha alleviating diet as the main treatment methodology. Other treatment methods include,

● Pessary made of purifying drugs to keep inside vagina.
● Medicated enema with oil from nourishing drugs (Jivaniya gana dravyas) etc.
What distinguishes cervical erosion from cervical ectropion?
Cervical ectropion is occasionally referred to as cervical erosion, however this name is incorrect. Cervical ectropion does not cause cells to "erode." Instead, the cervix "everts," or flips inside out, exposing the glandular cells which line the interior of your cervix to the outside world.
Should we treat Cervical erosion ?
There might not be a need to treat cervical ectropion unless your symptoms are upsetting you. The majority of affected individuals have very few issues. The condition may naturally improve. Talk with a doctor about your treatment choices if you experience persistent, bothersome symptoms, such as mucous discharge, bleeding, or pain during or after sex. The primary therapy is cauterizing the affected location, which can stop bleeding and unusual discharge. Heat (diathermy), cold (cryotherapy), or silver nitrate can all be used to achieve this.
