Cervicitis

What's the scoop?

 

Cervicitis refers to inflammation of the cervix. The cervix is located at the bottom of the uterus which opens into the vagina. In many cases, a person can get cervicitis from an STD, such as chlamydia or gonorrhea, however it can occur from things not related to infection as well.

 

 

Diagnosis & Treatment

 

Typically cervicitis won't present any symtoms, however in some cases women show symptoms including large amounts of discharge, bleeding between periods or after sex, and pain while peeing or while having sex.

The cervix acts as a door to the uterus and keeps bacteria and viruses from traveling up into the uterus. Because of this, it's important to get checked if you think you might have cervicitis.

 

To treat cervicitis, a medical professional will look at the cause of the inflammation and treat it accordingly.
