Cervicitis is an inflammation of the cervix - the lower part of the uterus that extends about one inch into the vaginal canal.
Cervicitis is probably the most common of all gynecological disorders, affecting half of all women at some point in their lives.
Most commonly, cervicitis is the result of an infection, although it can also be caused by injury or irritation (as a reaction to the chemicals in douches and contraceptives, for example, or a forgotten tampon).
