The Vagina Aches When Urinating After A Diagnosis Of Cervical Cancer?
Last night I want to ask. On the 28th I tested the Iva yesterday and thank God the results were negative. Is after the test the side effects like that? And to reduce the pain is there any cure?
Hello Friska, thanks for asking.
IVA or visual inspection of acetic acid, is an easy and inexpensive way for early detection of cervical cancer. The doctor will use a speculum inserted in the vagina to open the vaginal mouth. After that the doctor will do a visual assessment of the condition of the vaginal wall and cervix. Then the doctor performed outward appearance of the cervix with 3-5% concentration of acetic acid. The results were assessed as negative, positive or inflammatory.
Generally the side effects can be in the form of pain or discomfort in the vagina. Discomfort may be felt at any time, or maybe during and after sexual intercourse, or during urination. The pain will improve by itself in a few days. You can try taking paracetamol or ibuprofen to reduce pain. Make sure you do not have an allergy to the two drugs and take the recommended dosage.
If the symptoms do not improve or actually worsen, you should consult a doctor. Worsening of symptoms may indicate other problems such as urinary tract infections or inflammation of the vagina.
Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
