Causes And Ways To Deal With Inflammation In The Cervix?
I want to ask. I experienced a lot of vaginal discharge and stomach ache. After I checked Iva, the midwife had seen a white sign but disappeared and just turned red. then in transvaginal ultrasound there is indeed inflammation of almost half of the mouth of the uterus. if I check papsmire and it doesn’t come out.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Inflammation in the cervix is not always caused by cancer and the presence of blood that comes out during the PAP smear also does not indicate the inflammation is caused by cancer. Basically when there is inflammation, the blood vessels in the inflamed area will widen so that the area will indeed bleed more easily. A slight bleeding out during a PAP smear can also occur on a normal cervix (no inflammation), so you don't need to worry too much.
Inflammation of the cervix can occur due to various causes, including:
sexually transmitted infections
allergic reaction or irritation to certain ingredients that are inserted into the vagina (for example you use certain fragrances in your vagina, you often douche or wash your vagina with certain ingredients, you are allergic to latex condoms, etc.)
excessive bacterial overgrowth in the vagina (also known as bacterial vaginosis)
The following are some things you can do:
Avoid risky sexual relations (changing partners and not using condoms)
Avoid sexual intercourse first as long as your cervicitis is not known why and has not been treated completely
Avoid doing douches
Avoid using certain chemicals or herbs around the vagina
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
