chronic cervicitis

I had a colposcopy and biopsy done and found out i have chronic cervicitis. Just wondering if anybody can tell me what this is, what causes it and if it turns into anything worse. they told me i need to have a repap in 3 months. could it get worse in those 3 months?

Re: chronic cervicitis

Hi,

Yes, chronic cervicitis can get worse, so it's important that you continue to have paps every 3 months. I had a colpo last summer that came back as chronic cervicitis, a pap 3 months later showed low grade dysplasia, but another colpo in January showed high grade dysplasia. I had been going between normal and low grade dysplasia for two years, but since my most recent biopsy showed high grade, I'm having LEEP (tomorrow, actually). The majority of the time, low grade dysplasia clears up on its own, but you need to monitor it. I don't know what causes cervicitis.
