I am experiencing lower abdominal pain (side: right) and leg pain. I went to my OB to check if it is UTI, but result said otherwise. A speculum was inserted on my vagina and fluid gushed out. I was said to have cervicitis. Does it lead to cancer?
STD? PID?: Cervicitis does not lead to cancer. However, dysplasia caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) can mimic cervicitis and could be pre-cancerous. Probably testing included a pap smear and perhaps HPV testing. You also mention abdominal pain (PID?), and you also should have been tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia, which are common causes of cervicitis and PID. Check all this with your doctor. Good luck!

R irregular periods an issue of concern fr future pregnancy n related problems? Will consumption of contraceptive pill lead to future infertility?
Not really: The first symptom of cervicitis is likely to be a vaginal discharge that becomes more pronounced immediately after a menstrual period. Other signs include bleeding, itching, or irritation of the external genitals; pain during intercourse; a burning sensation during urination; and lower back pain. A more severe case of cervicitis can cause a profuse, almost pus-like, discharge with an odor.
Gram stain/gono/chla: If a woman has signs of this, like bleeding or high white blood cells on gram stain, she should be tested further. Patients who have mucopurulent cervicitis should be tested for c. Trachomatis and for n. Gonorrhoeae with the most sensitive and specific test available. It must be noted that mucopurulent cervicitis is not a sensitive for these infections, indeed most of these women don't have mpc.

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.
