What is pyometra?

Pyometra is extremely rare in humans. It occurs when there is a blockage of the opening of the uterus (cervix) and an infection occurs in the cavity, and it can fill with purulent material (pus). This occurs mostly in older, post-menopausal women when the cervix (outlet of the womb) is narrowed by tumors or previous surgeries.

Symptoms of pyometra

  • Increased vaginal discharge that is smelly

  • Yellow vaginal discharge

  • Fever

  • Abdominal pain

  • Lower left abdomen or tummy pain

  • Right lower abdominal pain

  • Stomach feels bloated

Questions your doctor may ask to check for pyometra

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose pyometra

  • Has the vaginal discharge odor worsened recently?

  • Is your vaginal discharge yellow?

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Do you have a stomach ache?

  • Do you have pain in the lower left abdomen?

Treatment for pyometra

Antibiotics and surgery are typically required to treat the infection. Treatment of the cause (e.g. blockage from scars or a tumor) is needed to prevent the infection from returning.
