bibili22, Cervical Infection is not a term commonly used. Infections are normally not sexually transmitted and do not occur in your cervix.
Three types of infections can occur in your vagina and vulva:
* Fungus (much less common)
Each one have its own symptoms, signs and treatment. So if you describe what you are experiencing, maybe we can assist to point you in the right direction.
STDs are not infections but diseases. They normally have sores or other signs. These diseases are passed on by having sex with an infected person.
You also have your own natural cervical mucus cycle. This does not mean you have an infection, just like your hormones are working as it should. Cervical mucus can be seen at certain phases during your monthly cycles in your panties or on toilet paper when you wipe.
However, in a few cases it may be due to:
A device inserted into the pelvic area such as:
* Cervical cap
* Device to support the uterus (pessary)
* An allergy to spermicides used for birth control
* An allergy to latex in condoms
* Exposure to chemicals (douche or other)
Although it is often stated that bacteria (such as staphylococcus and streptococcus) and too much growth of normal bacteria in the vagina (bacterial vaginosis), can also cause cervicitis, it is still unclear if it is actually the case.
Did your doctor treat you for an STD? Your partner should also be tested and treated for STDs.
