Tanaka, Yosinori
Investigation on 45 women, taking a cure at Misasa Spa because of various gynecological complaints without advice of doctor, proved that; (1) The vast majority of these women had suffered from their diseases for years, and no medical treatment up to this time could show any favourable effect. (2) Their chief complaints were lower abdominal pain (25%), vaginal discharge (21.9%), lumbago (16%), vaginal bleeding (10.9%), abnormality of menstruation (6.3%), infertility (6.3%), etc.. (3) Pelvic examination in our clinic revealed adnexitis (25%), vaginitis (21.2%), hypoplasia uteri (11.6%), retroflexio uteri (9.6%), infertility (7.7%), etc.. But as the most remarkable fact there were 5 cases (11.6%) of contraindications, (cancer of uterus 2, bleeding myoma of uterus 1, acute phase of adnexitis 2), shown tendency to become worse after thermal baths. (4) In some cases of adnexitis, vaginal discharge, hypoplasia uteri, etc., spa treatment in Misasa proved very effective, and as an "accident thermal" 2 cases of functional bleeding were noted. The author emphasizes that balnetherapy is very useful for various gynecological diseases, but should be supervised and controled by doctor as in Western countries.
