I had no symptoms but I was having problem in passing urine. My post void urine was 90 cc. My cervicitis was discovered during pelvic examination.

With cervicitis I had two and a half years of pain, inflammation, extreme itchiness, UTIs (urinary tract infections) and pus discharge, every single day. I was on Depo-Provera injection at the beginning of symptoms, and when I stopped it made no difference to the symptoms. On top of everything, now I have heavy periods for a week, regularly, even though I have been told I am in menopause. I have had numerous tests, scans internal and external, blood and urine tests. It is not STD related. I have seen 2 gynecologists and 1 urologist, with no relief. I do not know what to do and worry nothing can be done medically.

Usually I undergo a Pap smear test once every year. Recently, I have done this. The results showed ASCUS. Doctor consulted to go for biopsy. I was horrified that this is required. The doctor advised that among many of the causes for ASCUS, one is cervical cancer. Hence it is required to rule that out. I have undergone biopsy. Until the results came out I was very much afraid. The report showed it is chronic cervicitis. The doctor gave me an antibiotic treatment and asked for repeat Pap smear after six months. The only symptoms experienced were pains during the intercourse and frequent urination.

I had think creamy discharge then eventually heavy bleeding with clots for a week after my monthly cycle with no pain. I visited the Dr. who diagnosed me with cervicitis. The doctor said my cervix was normal but the bleeding was from outside the cervix which left me confused when asked me to go for Biopsy. Pap smear was done. Now I'm waiting for results.

I was diagnosed with cervicitis last Saturday. The doctor examined me through a Pap smear. I was advised not to have contact until we get the result. I experienced brownish discharge. I change my underwear almost every 2 hours due to my discharge and its odor. I am afraid that it might be chlamydia or gonorrhea, or worst it may lead to cancer.

I was feeling nauseated. I was very weak, and I had a brownish discharge. I am also about nine weeks pregnant. I have only been with one person and my mate had only been with me but they were saying that I could have a STD.

No symptoms. I just went for a Pap smear and felt pain. A lot of blood came out and I'm still having brown spots.

I had a smelly pinkish brown discharge, urinary incontinence and frequency that got worse with time. I responded very well to antibiotic treatment.

Mine was caused from Mirena IUD removal one month after removal.

My only symptom was severe pain with intercourse, but not at every occurrence of intercourse. At times it would feel like my partner had bruised my cervix. After one instance where the pain was so severe I was vomiting and bleeding after intercourse I made an appointment with my physician and was diagnosed with cervicitis.
