Cervictis

What is Cervictis?

Cervictis is an inflammation of your cervix. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus extending about an inch into the vaginal canal.

Cervictis is probably the most common of all gynecological disorders. It affects almost half of all women at some point in their lives.

Symptoms of Cervictis

Often there are no symptoms and cervictis is discovered during a pap test or a biopsy done for another condition. When symptoms are present, the most common symptoms are:

  • pain during intercourse
  • grayish or yellow vaginal discharge
  • bleeding after intercourse
  • abdominal pain

The symptoms of cervictis are often confused with the symptoms of vaginitis.

What Causes Cervictis?

The most common cause of cervictis are STDs and exposures to certain types of bacteria.

How is Cervictis Diagnosed?

Your doctor will review your symptoms, take a physical exam, and take samples of cervical secretions (pap smear) and analyze it for signs of cervictis.

Can Cervictis be Treated?

Yes cervictis can be treated. The treatment will depend on the cause. If the cause is bacteria, an antibiotic may be prescribed. If the cause is an STD, treatment of the STD is needed.

Can Cervictis be prevented?

You can limit your risk of developing cervictis by:

  • Limit your number of sexual partners.
  • Know the history of your partner.
  • See your doctor immediately if your partner has been diagnosed with urethritis. The symptoms of urethritis are: pain or burning during urination, a thin discharge from the penis, or a stain on his underwear.
  • Have a complete physical exam annually.
  • Treat vaginal infections immediately.
  • Avoid chemical irritants in deodorized tampons, douches, or sprays.
