Cervicitis is common problem among women. Cervicitis is inflammation of the cervix due to infection. These infected tissues may become red, swollen and ooze mucus and pus. They also bleed easily when touched. If the infection is the problem, it can spread beyond the cervix to the uterus and the fallopian tube and into the pelvic and abdominal cavity and cause life- threatening infection. Severe cases of inflammation are usually caused by infections that are passed during sexual activity. The untreated infectious cervicitis may progress to pelvic inflammatory diseases, ectopic pregnancy and infertility.
