Cervicitis: The causes of cervicitis are not completely understood. As apparently in your case,30-50% of cases test negative for all known infections that might cause it. The rest may be due to one or more undiscovered bacteria or viruses, or perhaps due to be non-infectious inflammation. Fortunately such cases have no known complications or serious health outcomes, and most eventually clear up on their own.
