Genital Tuberculosis - Know Everything About It!

Genital Tuberculosis - Know Everything About It!

Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection triggered by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacterium. Mainly attacking the lungs, the bacterial infection can be life-threatening with serious complications. The condition can also affect other parts and organs of the body, including the genital tract. Genital Tuberculosis is a medical condition where the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis attacks the genital tract. The other genital organs such as the testes, prostate gland, ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes, vulva, urinary bladder, cervix, as well as the vagina, may be equally affected by the dangerous infection with severe consequences. As per a survey, incidences of genital tuberculosis were not very common in India until few years, but the incidences have increased, affecting approximately 9% of the total population.

Mode of Spread of Genital Tuberculosis

Genital tuberculosis can affect any person irrespective of their sexes. The infectious is known to be contagious and can spread through the following possible means

  1. In some people, the infection can initially attack other body parts and then gradually spread to the genital tract. For example, prolonged and untreated tuberculosis of the lungs may trigger genital tuberculosis in females.
  2. The bacterial infection can also spread from an infected person through their nasal droppings, cough (in the case of pulmonary tuberculosis).
  3. Being in close physical proximity (such as shaking hands, sharing food or even sexual intercourse) to a person suffering from tuberculosis can also spread the infection.

Symptoms of Genital Tuberculosis:

There are no characteristic symptoms or early signs associated with Genital Tuberculosis. In fact, in many cases, the infection is said to be latent where the bacterial attack will not result in any subsequent infection. However, a person with Genital Tuberculosis may complain of the following complications.

  • Pain in the pelvic region.
  • Bleeding may be observed after having sex.
  • Menstrual problems, such as irregular periods, heavy vaginal discharge (often blood stained). In some women, the infection left untreated can cause the menses to stop completely, making it a traumatizing experience.
  • Women with genital tuberculosis may find it difficult to conceive (when the condition affects the fallopian tube, ovaries, and the uterus).

It is needless to say that if any of the mentioned symptoms persist for long, waste no time and consult a physician at the earliest. Timely medical intervention may help to alleviate some of the harmful consequences associated with the condition.

Diagnosis and Treatment

The diagnosis of genital tuberculosis include

  • A tuberculin skin test.
  • The doctor may also recommend an examination of the menstrual blood to understand the condition better.
  • An ultrasound of the pelvic area, cervical smear analysis or endometrial curettage can also be used in the diagnosis.
  • Laparoscopic as well as an endoscopic study of the genital organs for a more accurate diagnosis.

Treatment:

The treatment for genital tuberculosis involves the administration of anti-TB drugs (in two phases as per DOTS initiative).

In the first stage, three anti-TB drugs are given to the patient over a span of 2 months. The next stage includes administration of at least two anti-TB drugs continued over a span of 4-10 months. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear Lybrateuser, Chronic Cough could be due to variety of reasons like Infection, Allergy. You need a second opinion from a Pulmonologist, kindly ask for Chest Xray, Sputum Test and PFT test. Hopefully a proper diagnosis will solve the health issue. Wishing your mother good health.

Hello lybrate user. Coughing is a natural body reflex It keeps the lungs, throat and airway clear of foreign material But constant coughing causes discomfort and caused by infection like common cold. Rx Steam inhalation with halin drops or mint leaves. Dashamoola katutrayadi kwatha 10ml diluting with warm water twice a day before food. Sudarshan vati 2 twice a day after food. Avoid cold heavy fermented oily food stuffs. Avoid exposure to direct wind and sunlight.

Hello lybrate-user, the symptoms you have described characteristically fits into gerd, which stands for gastroeaophageal reflux disease. Here the stomach acid when you lie flat or after heavy meals reflux back into the food pipe which may cause nausea, burping, breathlessness, feeling of acidic taste in the throat. This deserves a detailed discussion with your doctor. However some important measured you can take is. 1) avoid spicy, oily preserved food. No chocolates, aerated drinks, tea, coffee 2) avoid heavy meals and sleeping immediately after meals at least for one and half hours 3) raise head end of your bed by a already 10-12 inch s. Try using two pillows to sleep 4) take a medicine like sompraz d 40 mg 15 mins before breakfast for 2 weeks at least. Let me know how you feel in 2- 3 days after starting medication and we may evaluate it furthur as I believe that the cause of your breathing issue is because of the stomach.
