Does bacterial vaginosis cause cervicitis?

Not usually. Bacterial vaginosis usually causes a thin, grey-white discharge and a characteristic bad smell, which could be described as "musty" or "fishy." unlike a cervicitis, where the cervix is the source of discharge due an infection or other irritation, with bacterial vaginosis the discharge comes from the vagina due to a shift away from the good bacteria that usually live there.
Maybe. Cervicitis is very common in women with BV, but whether one causes the other isn't well known. Research is continuing on this.
