Cervicitis (cont.)

Cervicitis Follow-up

Do not have sexual intercourse until your treatment is completed and your symptoms have gone away - for at least 7 days.

  • In some cases, a single dosage of medication, which could include an injection, has been shown to wipe out the disease. In other cases, your doctor may prescribe a longer period of medication.
  • If your infection stems from a sexually transmitted disease, your sexual partner also should be treated. Do not have sexual relations until your partner is treated. Once you have been treated, follow up with your doctor for 3 months with regular exams.
  • Cervicitis, if found in a young person or a child, may indicate child sexual abuse.
