Myth #1: Ureaplasma needs to be treated

In the vast majority of cases, the diagnosis and treatment of ureaplasmas and mycoplasmas is not needed: these microorganisms can normally exist in the genital tract of men and women without causing any diseases.

Myth #2: HPV (human papillomavirus) needs to be treated

It is not necessary to carry out drug treatment of the human papillomavirus – today there is not a single drug that effectively affects this virus.

Myth No. 3: Immunomodulators contribute to the treatment of many diseases

For the successful treatment of gynecological diseases, immunomodulators, interferons, vitamins, dietary supplements, hepatoprotectors, as well as agents for restoring the intestinal and vaginal flora are not needed.

Myth number 4: you need to treat cervical erosion

Erosion of the cervix should be cauterized only in two cases:

  • if you have spotting after intercourse;

  • if a woman has an excessive amount of normal, odorless, white discharge.

In all other cases, cauterization of erosion is not required.
