Diagnosed with squamous metaplasia w/ chronic cervicitis and positive hpv last yr. Do u think this would develop into cancer within a yr?

Hard to say: If you have these changes now you have likely had the HPV strain in your system for 5-10 yrs. That is when the clock starts on possible conversion. You are aware now that you have worrisome signs and have likely been scheduled for interval testing to see if this progresses. Keep your appointments and you should get the best possible outcome.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body.

Results show CIN 2 related to type 16 HPV (treated with leap). Results also show acute chronic cervicitis. Doctor did not bring up. Is this a result of cin/hpv, or likely separate? Monogynous for 4yr

Separate: "cervicitis" diagnosed only upon microscopic exam is usually a normal state. It was named long ago when it was thought to be abnormal. Nowadays, we know that most women have these changes. But for some silly reason, we have not changed the wording of the condition to signify that it is a type of normal. It is not related to hpv.

My fiancé who had CIN 2 as a result of "high" risk hpv. She had biopsy and eventually the leap procedure. Results alsoindicated acute chronic cervicitis. Is the cervicitis due to the HPV or separate?

My fiancé who had CIN 2 as a result of "high" risk hpv. She had biopsy and eventually the leap procedure. Results alsoindicated acute chronic cervicitis. Is the cervicitis due to the HPV or separate?

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.

Biopsy results from colopscopy= yes chronic cervicitis, no dysplasia. Due to positive high risk hpv. Will abstinence clear the chronic cervicitis?

Biopsy results from colopscopy= yes chronic cervicitis, no dysplasia. Due to positive high risk hpv. Will abstinence clear the chronic cervicitis?

No, unless HPV is: Treated & eradicated. Certain strains of hpv are closely linked with cervical cancer. As long as the hpv is present, cervicitis may continue, dysplasia may develop, & cervical cancer may result. See gyn for treatment options. Good luck. Partner (s) also need to be checked & treated for hpv.

Cevicitis: That depends upon the cause. Many cases are due to sexually transmitted infections. Non-infectious causes can include intrauterine devices, contraceptive diaphragms, and allergic reactions to spermicides or latex condoms. Many of the std ones are due to hpv. This needs full discussion after careful assessment by your gynecologist.

Can hormonal imbalance cause chronic cervicitis? Thanks.

No: It has nothing to do with that, cervicitis can be caused by an infection or chronic irritation, your doc can do a colposcopy and biopsy to confirm the diagnosis and there are various treatment options if necessary, please see your gyn.

I have an reactive squamous metaplasia and chronic cervicitis. Bad?

Not necessarily: What were your pap and hpv results? Continue to have regular pap testing. Neither squamous metaplasia nor chronic cervicitis in themselves have immediate serious consequences.

Smear test was ok, bacteriological one too, I sill have chronic cervicitis. What could be causing it?

Not clear: Which smear test? Pap smear? When you say bacteriological, what do you mean? Were the cultures taken? In any event, this could all be due to the virus, or chlamydia, which are not going to show in cultures.

How to follow up a case of chronic cervicitis?

No definite rule: Chronic cervicitis usually has noninfectious cause such as mechanical (eg trauma from surgery or from objects such as tampon, diaphragm, pessary, iud) or chemical irritation (eg douches, latex 'from condoms', vaginal creams/gels). Removing the inciting agent is usually the treatment. If it is asymptomatic and is found on biopsy or pap no treatment is necessary. Freezing (Cryotherapy) may help.

Sir, please give me the better treatment for chronic cervicitis with squamous metaplasia.

Your gynecologist ca: Seek help from your gynecologist. Chronic cervicitis is self limiting, so no immediate treatment is needed. Just get your pap smear done once yearly and as long as it does not have any abnormal cells in cytology, nothing to worry about for the time being.

No cancer: The findings are non-specific and not diagnostic of a defined entity. Do follow your doctor's advice for follow-up tests. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

Condyloma = Herpes: Condylomas are genital warts and are sexually transmitted. Discuss with your gynecologist, who may or may not recommend further treatment depending upon appearance of your cervix. Certainly advise any sexual partner to use a condom.
