Acute and Chronic: Most causes of cervicitis include sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis. Hpv also puts you at risk for cervicitis. There is an increased risk of chronic cervicitis with multiple sex patners or with a past history of stds. Cervicitis may be due to injury or irritation from chemicals found in douches or allergies to spermicides or latex found in condoms.

Cin 2 is the important finding here. Cervititis simply implies inflammation and is irrelevant in this context

Maybe...: Cervicitis is commonly seen in association with hpv infection. However, in the setting of previous biopsy before the leep, it is uncertain because the biopsy itself will cause inflammation and tissue damage.
