No definite rule: Chronic cervicitis usually has noninfectious cause such as mechanical (eg trauma from surgery or from objects such as tampon, diaphragm, pessary, iud) or chemical irritation (eg douches, latex 'from condoms', vaginal creams/gels). Removing the inciting agent is usually the treatment. If it is asymptomatic and is found on biopsy or pap no treatment is necessary. Freezing (Cryotherapy) may help.
