Genyantritis in pregnancy: symptoms, causes, treatment
Coryza during pregnancy, according to doctors, the phenomenon is quite common, which should not cause a future mother a strong excitement. But another thing, when a slight stuffy nose gradually flows into a complication – sinusitis. Treatment of rhinosinusitis requires special vigilance, and in the period of gestation the problem is burdened by a ban on many medications.
It is a well-known fact that during pregnancy, the woman’s immune system is weakened and can not protect the body from all viruses and infections. Sinusitis is not a separate disease. As a rule, it occurs against the background of a protracted acute cold, ARVI, scarlet fever or measles.
Inflammation of the sinuses of the future mothers is associated with the condensation of mucus that forms inside. It is too slowly excreted from the body and becomes a favorable environment for the multiplication of many microorganisms, contributing to the onset of this dangerous disease.
Thanks to modern knowledge and equipment, it is possible to recognize sinusitis at the earliest stages. Doctors often use four methods of diagnosing the disease:
- Endoscopy. Medical examination is carried out using a special device called an endoscope. This tube, equipped with a lens on one side, allows you to carefully examine the condition of the nasal mucosa.
- Radiography. The method of medical visualization allows you to display anatomical structures. With sinusitis, the picture shows the level of fluid and the presence of tumors. During pregnancy, this method is extremely undesirable.
- CT scan. The study provides comprehensive information on the state of the maxillary sinuses. Radiation load is much less than in x-rays. But the procedure is still not recommended in the first half of a child's bearing.
- Diagnose sinusitis during pregnancy, the second and third methods often do not seem impossible, and specialists for clarification and treatment use surgical manipulation called puncture of the maxillary sinus. The procedure is a puncture of the maxillary cavity.
