Main Article on Cervicitis (Cervix Inflammation or Infection) Question: Please share your experience with cervicitis. Submit Your Comment Comment from: NDR, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: October 09 My cervicitis was caused by repeated treatment for pre-cancerous cells on my cervix. After literally months of suffering, traipsing back to my general physician and gynecologist the colposcopy nurse diagnosed me. I cannot have treatment because the treatment in my case will aggravate the cervix further. The symptoms I have are a severe burning sensation inside, discomfort, continual need to urinate (often at night). It can last for days or weeks at a time.
