What is cervical infection? - Online Doctor Chats
Dear Dr My wife had done cancer checkup recently
It shows some cervical infection
what does it mean exactly?
sorry about that
can you share the report with me?
I am extremely sorry. I don't have the report with me. It is done at Chennai and now we are in Mumbai. I just got the information on the phone
how serious it is?
this is not serious
most women have some amount of infection in their cervix
this is expected
Offcourse he is not a doctor.
She is a nurse.
that is why I am asking you the report to comment specifically
mild inflammation is fine
please share the report with me to comment specifically
You can mail the report to me in your free time
would you like to note my email address?
Actually it was done 3 months back. we forgot to collect the report from them.
When is it possible for you to send the report?
yes please send me your email id
in 2 days time
then how will you send the report, if you do not have it?
I will ask them to courier it
you can mail to this address
can you please hold on. I am checking on the phone
In the subject line, mention 'attention to Dr'
it shows moderate serviceties
what is the level of inflammation ?
I asked it. she is not able to explain it
I am sorry. I know that without any concrete information I am bothering you
and it was on Aug-13
it means infection in the cervix
That can be cured with antibiotics
vibact is like probiotic
it will replenish some of the normal organisms in the genital tract
she can continue to take the tablet and finish the course
Ok, would you like to advice any further checkup?
How we would come to know the infection is curred after the course?
do I need to do any pathology test?
check for infection again
what is your wife's age?
how many kids do you have?
1 daughter 1 and half year old
just one kid?
how long are you married for?
nothing to worry
get back to me with the report
or ask her local doctor to treat your wife with antibiotics for 2 weeks minimum
repeat the PAP smear after 4 weeks
once report is normal, repeat the test annually to make sure that all is normal
what will be the cost for pap smear test? any idea?
it is not much
it will be around 250 INR
are you following me?
This is not cancer
There is no need for you to worry
Please do not believe people blindly although I understand a nurse has told you this
Oh thank you doctor.
Without seeing the reports and the confirmative evidence, we cannot comment anything
I hope you understand now
please ask me anymore queries that you may have
Got it. I will send you the report once I get it just for reconfirmation
please send the report and you can come back on chat
we can discuss further
I would suggest you specifically then
For now, please relax
nothing to worry
get your wife treated for the infection by her doctor
thanks a ton for your help. bye
