Home remedies for the treatment of pelvic inflammatory disease

When sexually transmitted bacteria enters vagina and then spreads to uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, it becomes a condition known as the Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) in women.

If women do not pay considerable attention to its symptoms like irregular menstrual bleeding, vaginal discharge with odor, abdominal or back pain, pelvic pain, and exhaustion, it might leave an irreversible damage to female reproductive organs. However, if things are under control then you can try these home remedies that help get rid of PID symptoms naturally:


 garlic intake

You should increase your garlic intake and a very effective remedy you can try. Fry two or three crushed garlic cloves in some olive oil, and continue frying them until they turn brown. Strain the oil, let it cool down, dip a cotton ball in this oil and then insert the cotton ball into your vagina. Remove the cotton and let oil do its action, i.e. it removes vaginal bacteria and prevents recurrence of such infections.
