Inflamed Cervics

I Went to the doctor back in October because I was having bladder problems. I always had to urinate every hour weather it was a lot or not always felt like I had to urinate. I took anticbotics it seemed to make me worse and they said I didnt have a UTI but when they examined me vaginally they said my cervics was inflamed. They didnt really seem worried or give me and explination on what could of caused it.My bladder has finally gotten better on its own but I have never been told my cervics was inflamed and I get my yearly pap smear this month. Im just wondering if anyone knows what can cause an inflamed cervics? and how long does it usually last?

Hello,
Inflammation of cervix or Cervicitis is most often caused by an infection, usually caught during sexual activity. However it can be due to use of diaphragms, allergic reaction, pessaries etc.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hi, Thanks for your reply an infection meaning and Sexual Transmited Infection or an STD? I dont use diaphragms or pessaries and I dont think Im allergic to anything so this concerns me but the doctors that told me my cervics was inflamed didnt seem concerned. They just did a urine sample maily to check my bladder and I think swabbed me and said my tests came back normal Im not sure what all they checked me for at that time. I will be going to get my yearly physical exam in a week so hopefully everything will be ok by then.
