In the mildest form of cervicitis, you may not notice any symptoms at all.
- The first symptom of cervicitis likely will be a vaginal discharge that becomes more pronounced immediately following your menstrual period.
- Other signs include the following:
- Lower back pain or pain low in the abdomen, sometimes felt only during sexual intercourse
- A more severe case of cervicitis can cause a profuse, almost puslike, discharge with an unpleasant odor, accompanied by intense vaginal itchiness or abdominal pain.
- If the infection spreads to other organs, you may also have fever, nausea, and abdominal pain.
