Question:

What does a Raw Cervix indicate?

Dear Ask The Doctor:
What does it mean to have a Raw Cervix?


Answer:

A raw cervix could indicate a cervical erosion. This is caused by the absence of squamous epithelium of the cervix. The normal tissue on the surface of the cervix is replaced by inflamed tissue from within the cervical canal. The endocervical tissue is red and granular, so it gives the cervix a red, eroded, and infected appearance also called `raw cervix``. Cervical erosion may be caused by trauma (through intercourse, tampon insertion, foreign objects in the vagina, or speculum insertion), or infection (herpes, early syphilis, severe vaginal infections), and sometimes chemicals (spermaticidal contraceptive creams or foams, douches).
