This is a question for Grace (if she is around). Is cervicitis always an STD? I occassionaly have pain during sex and some weird discharge every now and again. I read that this could be cervicitis!?! Do I have an STD? I was with a guy but we got tested together for gonorhea and chlamydia and he and I came back negative.
Cervicitis is not always a result of an STD. If you do some reading on line you will find that it can also be caused by the normal bacteria of the vagina. If there is a PH imbalanace that allows the bad bacteria to overpopulate the vagina, it can cause cervicitis. Semen can change the PH of the vagina.
