In brief: Condoms

Cervicitis is most commonly caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia; both are sexually transmitted infections.
Only condoms of abstinence will reduce your risk of contracting one of these infections.

In brief: Condoms

Many causes of cervicitis are sexually transmitted and condoms are quite effective at prevention.
Other causes, such as a yeast infection after taking antibiotics, or a yeast infection for no obvious reason are not preventable, but very treatable. Atrophic vaginitis occurs commonly after menopause and is amenable to estrogen therapy.
