What checks did you perform and what samples were used? Is it a pap smear, vaginal discharge test, or other tests? The presence of bacterial findings on examination generally indicates the patient is infected with bacteria. Bacterial infections can be treated with adequate antibiotics.
As for cervical erosion, cervical erosion is a condition where the squamous cells on the outside of the cervix (normally the outside of the cervix consists of squamous cells) are replaced by columnar cells from the inside of the cervix. This condition facilitates or increases the risk of infection and inflammation.
One of the symptoms of cervical erosion is bleeding during intercourse, but vaginal discharge can also be a symptom of cervical erosion. Cervical erosion can be influenced by several factors such as fungal infections, bacterial infections, use of contraceptives, sexually transmitted diseases, and malignancies.
Examination to determine cervical erosion is by vaginal fluid tests, blood tests, urine tests, and pap smears. Cervical erosion can be treated with laser, cryosurgery, and cautery. Medicines are also given to support the healing process and if an infection is found.
If you are not sure about the diagnosis of cervical erosion, you can seek a second opinion with another obstetrician so that a re-evaluation of your condition can be carried out. The doctor will then recommend the most appropriate treatment for you.
