Cervicitis

Specialty of Obstetrics & Gynecology

Cervicitis is an inflammation of the cervix caused by an infection, usually caught during sexual activity. The most common infections are chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes and genital warts. Women may not notice any symptoms affected, but usually the cervicitis increased vaginal discharge, causing pain during intercourse, burning, cystitis, abnormal vaginal bleeding (after intercourse, after menopause, between periods ), pelvic pressure or heaviness and even skin lesions around the pubic hair. If not treated in time, the infection can reach the fallopian tubes and uterus, but it is important to perform a pelvic examination at onset of symptoms. Cervicitis is usually treated with antibiotics in case of bacterial infections such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, with antivirals for herpes infections or hormone in women who have reached menopause.
