The purpose of this work was to study the effect of ozone therapy female infertility of inflammatory aetiology.
We administered ozone to 56 patients (50 out of which were infertile), who had previously unsuccessfully undergone various kinds of treatments for inflammatory diseases of the genitalia,.
Ozone therapy in the concentrations used by us has good curative effect on infections caused by bacteria, chlamydia, mycoplasma, ureaplasma, toxoplasma, herpes simplex and cytomegalovirus and eliminates inflammation thus facilitating patency of the fallopian tubes which in turn has a positive effect on female infertility of inflammatory origin.
Infertility even today remains one of the most significant medical as well as social problems of the world. Approximately 8 – 10 % couples are classified as infertile. This means, that infertility is quite a global phenomenon and affects about 50 – 80 million people around the world. Infertility might be a result of host of factors although for a majority of infertile women inflammation of the genitalia remains the most important cause.
From the very beginning of human civilisation, inflammation has been synonymous with disease, which is true to this day. Among women suffering from inflammatory diseases of the genitalia, 75 % are young and not undergone parturition. Lately, both the frequency as well as the clinical picture of inflammatory diseases of the genitalia have undergone considerable changes. In almost 80 – 82 % patients, the inflammation process is chronic. Significant rise is noted in sexually transmitted gynaecological diseases, e.g. in 1989 there were about 50 million fresh cases of chlamydiosis in the world and in 1995 there were about 89 millions. Moreover, these diseases increase the patient’s susceptibility to HIV and quite often complicate into infertility. The infections are quite often found in various combinations, such as chlamydiosis along with Herpes simplex (17%), along with gardnerella (14%), along with ureaplasmosis (33%), along with mycoplasmosis (21%) and along with candidosis (13%).
