Whether cervicitis is contagious depends on its pathogens
Cervicitis, a common gynecological disease, can be caused by many factors such as childbirth, surgery, abortion and the neglect of genital tract hygiene. Once suffering from cervicitis, many women begin to worry about their sexual life as they think cervicitis is contagious. In fact, however, whether cervicitis is contagious is associated with its pathogens.


The pathogens of cervicitis include neisseria gonorrhea, mycoplasma, chlamydia, staphylococcus, streptococcus, escherichia coli, anaerobic bacteria, trichomoniasis and amoeba. Among these pathogens, some (neisseria gonorrhea, mycoplasma and chlamydia) can infect the partners through sex while others can't. So it is necessary for patients to make clear what the disease-causing pathogen is.


Patients can take relevant inspection to identify this. Take neisseria gonorrhea for example, patients can detect the existence of gonococcus through examinations like secretion smear gram stain, neisseria gonorrhea culture or nucleic acid detection.


Once the pathogen is confirmed as gonococcus, mycoplasma or chlamydia, women should attach great importance to sex because these pathogens may be transmitted by sexual intercourse. In addition, patients should also receive timely treatment in case something unpleasant happens.


In clinic, there are many treatment options of cervicitis: physical therapy, medication and surgery are all feasible.


Specifically, if the patient chooses physical therapy, she can get a cure through electrocautery, cryotherapy and laser treatment.


If the woman chooses drug therapy, she can choose both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). In terms of western medicine, patients can dip cotton swabs into 10% - 30% of silver nitrate solution or 10% tincture of iodine, and apply them to the infected part. After applying silver nitrate, patients should also daub the infected part with saline water.


As for TCM, patients can take a herbal medicine named fuyan pill. Fuyan pill is the reasonable combination of more than 50 herbs. Made from radix bupleuri, poria cocos, gardenia, atractylodes, rhizoma atractylodis, talc, angelica, peach kernel, safflower, radix glycyrrhizae, radix aucklandiae and some other herbs, fuyan pill can effectively kill all sorts of bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma, chlamydia and gonorrhea within about 3 months.


If the patient has cervical hypertrophy, large erosion surface or deterioration, then a surgery is needed.


No matter what treatment method the patient chooses, the one that is most suitable and can make patients recover as early as possible is the best.

All in all, whether cervicitis is contagious is associated with its pathogens. Therefore, once feeling uncomfortable, patients had better take some checkups to find out the disease-causing pathogens, and then take corresponding treatment.
