Cervicitis or inflammation of the cervix is a fairly common female pathology and can be caused by both infectious and non-infectious agents. Among the most common causes of cervicitis are:
- Sexually transmitted diseases, be it Chlamydia, Herpes Virus, Human Papilloma Virus, etc.
- Placement of the diaphragm.
- Use of contraceptive creams.
- Allergy to latex in condoms.
Although these are the most common causes of cervicitis, inflammation of the cervix can also appear after childbirth.
