Hi Hanny, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

The IVA test (visual inspection with acetic acid) is a test performed to screen for cervical cancer. This test is recommended to be done ideally every 3-5 years. In this examination, three possibilities can be found:

IVA is negative, that is, if the condition of the cervix is ‚Äč‚Äčnormal
IVA inflammation, which is when an inflammatory reaction is found, such as redness of the cervix
IVA is positive, that is, if there are white patches/plaques that are well-defined and appear on the cervix


The cause of inflammation of the cervix or also known as cervicitis is the most common infection in the vagina and cervix. Infections can be caused by sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, genital herpes, or trichomoniasis. Some other causes of cervical inflammation include:

Allergy to certain substances inserted into the vagina, for example condoms, spermicides
Irritation due to sexual intercourse, use of tampons or birth control devices such as diaphthagma
Irritation from certain chemicals or herbs used for washing and bathing the vagina (douche)
Overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria as in bacterial vaginosis
Hormonal imbalance
Cancer or in cancer treatment


After delivery, the cervix can also experience an inflammatory reaction, but to determine the cause of the inflammation in your cervix, further examinations such as cervical swabs and microscopic examination to see the possibility of infection in the cervix and urinalysis are needed.


If it is suspected that there is an infection that causes inflammation of the cervix, then you will be given appropriate therapy to treat the infection. However, if it is caused by other things such as allergies or irritation, you will be advised to avoid exposure to the material that causes the allergy or irritation.


Cervicitis is not always dangerous. In cervicitis caused by hormonal changes, for example, this condition can improve on its own without requiring special therapy. Likewise, if cervicitis is caused by allergies or irritation. However, if cervicitis is caused by infection, treatment must be done immediately to prevent the infection from ascending to the upper reproductive tract and causing pelvic inflammatory disease.
