What is the cause of chronic inflammation of the cervix?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 01/28/2022

Inflammation of the cervix, also called cervicitis, can be acute or chronic. Although the causes of both types can be highly variable, they are usually due to infection by microorganisms such as for example, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, herpes virus, and human papillomavirus.

Cervicitis can prevent pregnancy and cause infertility, as well as other discomforts such as leucorrhea, dysmenorrhea, pain during sexual intercourse, etc.
