Morbidity. Pelvic inflammatory disease is one of the big problems in gynecology. In the medical lexicon, the prefix – it is a direct indication of inflammation and is added to the Latin name of the organ.

Antibiotics lose their effectiveness due to the development of resistance of bacteria to their action. Moreover, they act indiscriminately on the whole body. Their necessity is outlined by an exceptionally acute period of the disease, but they can cause harm with constant and uncontrolled use.
Chronic inflammatory diseases of the pelvic organs can be cured only with the help of herbal medicine for several reasons:
1.Bacteria are not able to quickly develop resistance to plant antimicrobial substances (Reason: each plant has a unique range of biologically active substances with antibacterial action).
2.Only plants able to contain a different set of anti-inflammatory substances independent of otaslavice on which they grew.
