Infection with worms is very common among children, but it is also possible for many adults. The danger of parasites, even if they do not directly threaten human life, lies in the fact that helminths, parasitizing the human body, weaken its immune system.
Purely female signs of worms are:
- inflammation in the ovaries;
- menstrual irregularities and painful periods;
- weakness, loss of strength;
- breast pathology;
- inflammation of the adrenal glands;
- benign formations on the mucous genitalia, which are provoked by a dwarf chain.
Worms in women, except the anus, can often be located in the genitals. Symptoms of worms in women in this case are:
- enlarged lymph nodes;
- appearance of rashes on the skin;
- pain syndrome of muscles and joints;
- increased volume of the liver and spleen.
Helminths and menstrual disorders
Worms during menstruation, releasing poisonous substances in the course of their vital activity, can cause poisoning of the body through the bloody discharge that accompanies the process of ovulation. Localization in the female genitalia is characteristic for pinworms and then the main sign is the presence of severe itching. During menstruation, all negative signs become worse. In general, the manifestations of itching in the vagina are characteristic for very many diseases and can be provoked purely by external causes.
When pinworms creep in a woman's vagina, severe vulvovaginitis may occur, stimulating the development of gonorrheal lesions. In the absence of treatment, pinworms in women can cause such serious complications as inflammation of the fallopian tubes or ovaries. In this connection, the question arises: do worms affect menstruation? Normally, every woman in the reproductive age has moderate blood levels every month for 4-7 days. However, if inflammatory processes develop, this leads to violations of the menstrual cycle. In addition, worms affect monthly women indirectly, through the development of other pathologies, as well as changes in the hormonal background, stressful situations.
Very often, helminthic infestation in women provokes the development of inflammation of the mucous membrane of the urethra, in which, in addition to itching, painful sensations develop, burning sensation during the act of urination. Wrist glands in the urethra in women can cause cystitis.
Worms in men
Men's glistens appear almost twice less often than women, but they can also cause different health disorders. In men, the symptoms of worms, have their own specificity, due to the difference in anatomical structure and different functions. However, there are common signs characteristic of all adults, regardless of gender. Among them you can name:
- Constipation. They are caused by the blocking of the channels by parasites, which can grow to huge sizes of several meters.
- Diarrhea, which is caused by some types of worms that release specific substances.
- Flatulence with pain syndrome.
Eggs and larvae of parasites with blood flow are carried throughout the body. When the parasites are filled with muscles and joints, the man experiences severe pain, the temperature rises sharply and inflammation develops in the joints and muscles. Very often a sign of infection with parasites is anal itching, although such symptoms are also characteristic of other diseases. Parasites can penetrate the lungs, causing asthma, with penetration into the heart, clogging the vessels, they can lead to a heart attack. The manifestation of signs of the body's damage to the helminth men depends on such basic factors as:
- the number of worms that simultaneously hit the body;
- a place where parasites "took root";
- the level of the immune defense of men.
According to statistics, no less than eighty percent of severe chronic diseases( enterobiasis, trichinosis, oncological diseases and a number of others) are caused by parasite infestations. This is due to the fact that in addition to direct exposure to various organs, they disrupt the process of normal vital activity and weaken the immune defense. In addition, parasites secrete a large number of toxic compounds that significantly change the microflora, promoting the propagation of harmful microorganisms and adversely affect the functioning of the internal systems of the male body.
Manifestations of helminthic invasion in men are so diverse that it is difficult to diagnose them immediately. In addition, helminths have a strong ability to adapt to any conditions, surviving in almost all organs of a man. Therefore, when a worm infects a man, you do not need to look for other diseases, but you just need to undergo a comprehensive examination with tests. After revealing the appearance of the parasite, it is possible to develop the direction of treatment for the destruction of parasites and restore the normal functioning of the injured organ of a man.
