Please can I have info on cervical erosion. I never got any kind if treatment when I was told I have it. Confused? Is there a way to heal it on my own

Outdated term: In the us, this term isn't used, as it doesn't have a specific definition or cause. In other parts of the world, it's been used to describe a red appearance of the cervix, which may be caused by infection, stds, or may be normal. See a gyno now, and ask if there's any abnormal appearance, and get tested for stds if needed. Then use condoms in the future if you may be at risk for stds. ...Read more

My girlfriend is having intermittent moderate pain around the cervix two weeks after cervical erosion cauterisation. What may cause this?

My girlfriend is having intermittent moderate pain around the cervix two weeks after cervical erosion cauterisation. What may cause this?

That's not outside: Of what would be expected with normal healing, although it's often difficult to interpret where pain in the vagina/cervix/uterus is actually coming from. Nothing should have been inserted into the vagina up to this point. I think it would be safe to just watch and wait another week or so; contact her doctor if she is concerned in the meantime, especially if discharge or bleeding. Best wishes:) ...Read more
