Varies: Cervicitis is not a specific diagnosis.It can arise from infections like gonorrhea and chlamydia & non-infectious process also. If the germ is aggressive and enters the Fallopian tubes, it may produce scarring early on or never at all. Condom use decreases but does not prevent all possible infections.The sooner a STI is suspected, evaluated and treated, the more likely you are to preserve fertilit
