After learning about your symptoms and medical history, your doctor will perform a physical examination and pelvic exam to check for redness of the cervix, swelling of the vaginal walls, and discharge from the cervix.
They will also request a urine test and take a sample of cervical and vaginal fluid to analyze in the laboratory. If deemed necessary, tests to detect chlamydia and gonorrhea will also be required.
The treatment to follow will depend on the cause of the cervicitis. If it is due to a sexually transmitted disease, both you and your partner will need antibiotics.
If the pathology is due to an allergic reaction, you may not need treatment, perhaps only anti-inflammatories. In the event of a herpes infection, you will be prescribed antivirals.
For women in the menopausal stage, your doctor may suggest hormone therapy, either estrogen or progesterone.
If the symptoms continue even after treatment, you should undergo a study that allows your doctor to evaluate if the bacteria is resistant to the antibiotics prescribed.
