Can having rough sex injure your cervix? Is it more likely to cause cervical cancer?

Can having rough sex injure your cervix? Is it more likely to cause cervical cancer?

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.

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.
