I was reading about trichomonas on internet. It said that having this for a long time can increase chances of getting cervical cancer. Is this true?
HPV infections: Human papilloma viruses are being increasingly implicated with cervical cancers. Prevention is by prepubertal vaccination with Gardasil and cervarix. Limiting number of partners/ promiscuity and barrier methods will help prevent the disease. Pap smears have led to very early diagnosis and improved the odds of curable disease being found.
It's possible: If you are having blood in your urine it is important to see your doctor as soon as you can to be evaluated. It is possible for cervical cancer to cause bloody urine however this typically only happens in advanced cases where the cervical cancer is growing into the bladder.See 1 more doctor answer
Not quite: It is very prevalent and typically type 16 and 18 are the culprits, however it probably isn't accurate to say 'all' are caused by it.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: First of all, having sex does not cause cervical cancer. The virus that can go on to lead cervical cancer can be passed by sex as well as any other type of skin to skin contact. Other things that increase risk of cervical cancer are: smoking, herpes infection, HIV infection and not getting pap smears as recommended by your gyn.
Unlikely. . .: If you're referring to plain ol' penile-vaginal sex with a bit more effort, then "rough" vigorous sex should not injure your cervix any more so than "romantic, artful" (?) sex, which is to say, no. Unprotected sex w/multi-partners, whether all at once or just over time, can increase risk for cervical cancer via HSV infection. One last thought: if you use toys, then I suppose injury is possible.See 1 more doctor answer

I just learned I might have cervical cancer. Can this cause weight gain? I have gained lots of weight the last few months.
Cervical cancer: What do you mean by you might have? Did you have a biopsy that confirmed the diagnosis of cervical cancer? Weight gain can be caused by different things- like depression, hypothyroidism, edema/water retention due to different reasons, or simply increasing intake and being inactive can also increase your weight. Go to see pmd and get yourself checked and check your thyroid function.

HPV: Virtually all cervical cancer is caused by a single virus - human papillomavirus (letters capitalized to show why it is called hpv). Certain types of hpv are associated with cancer risk. Other types are associated with benign lesions. There are screening tests for hpv as well as traditional cytological tests - such as pap smears. There are vaccines to protect against acquisition of some types.See 1 more doctor answer
