How Fast Can I Make My Cervicitis Go Away
Happens all the time: Yes -- this happens a lot. Possible causes of cervicitis include gonorrhea and chlamydia, but most are not caused by known bacteria -- and only bacteria respond to antibioticss Cervicitis can also be caused by herpes and maybe trichomonas, and HPV infections of the cervix can look like cervicitis, so STD testing is always recommended but antibiotic treatment usually doesn't make much difference.
What happens if the antibiotics for my cervicitis didn't make it go away? I've been on them since monday and today is saturday, what could it mean?
Finish: Finish your course of antibiotics, as stopping early sets up for drug-resistant disease. When you are done, you can follow up with the person who prescribed the medication to assure you of its effectiveness or failure.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi I ve had BV and cervicitis in the past I was wondering if treating my BV could be a result of cervicitis also can cervicitis go away on its own or do I have to seek medical treatment every time how do I know if I have a sensitive cervix what causes cer
Treat cause/depends.: It is very hard to say if this is cured, especially with the major causes of gonorrhea and chlamydia. If these are the causes, treatment is with the appropriate antibiotics. If the cause is not infectious, like an iud, removal should help. If it's from allergic reaction to spermicides, etc. These should be avoided or tapered, or a different brand used. Even with abx rx. This can persist.
Exam/tests: Cervicitis is diagnosed by physical exam to see if the cervix appears inflamed and by obtaining cultures from the discharge present. Cervicitis can be caused by the STDs Chlamydia and Gonorrhea or can be "polymicrobial" meaning caused by several different bacteria. Please see your doctor for exam, diagnosis, and treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
May be none: There may be no symptoms to discharge, spotting, bleeding after sex etc. You may consult this site for more info: http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/cervicitis/basics/symptoms/CON-20026738 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.
Discharge, spotting: Many cases of cervicitis cause no symptoms at all. When symptoms are present, the most common is increased vaginal discharge, and sometimes blood spotting, especially after sex. When caused by STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia, there may be pain or discomfort on urination as well.
Depends: You may feel cramping or vague pain in your lower belly; or notice a funny vaginal discharge, painful peeing or bleeding between periods. You may not have any symptoms at all because sometimes women don't have any signs. This is why we screen sexually active young women 25 years old and younger.
Don't understand: Please re-ask and be more specific about what you would like to know. For an in-depth discussion consider discussing with your medical provider or asking a provider on Healthtap Prime or Concierge.
Vaginitis: Most commonly, cervicitis is the result of an infection, although it can also be caused by injury or irritation (as a reaction to the chemicals in douches and contraceptives, for example, or a forgotten tampon). The three most common infectious causes of cervicitis are chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomonas. All three are considered sexually transmitted diseases.
