Cervicitis is an inflammation of the cervix most often caused by bacteria or viruses. Usually this condition occurs because of a sexually transmitted infection (STI). This infection of the cervix often triggers HIV infection. Therefore, if you are pregnant, it is recommended to check in early pregnancy for possible STIs including the possibility of HIV infection. If during pregnancy, cervicitis that is not treated immediately will have an impact on several conditions, namely:

  • Premature birth
  • Miscarriage
  • Infection of the eyes and lungs of a newborn baby

Of course, for pregnant women who have a new partner or are couples who are sexually active and must be sexually active, they should carry out routine checks. Although doctors can treat inflammation of the cervix, it is recommended to treat it early to prevent prolonged ill effects.

How to treat cervicitis while pregnant?


Although not much different from treating women in general, overcoming cervicitis during pregnancy certainly requires special attention.

For example, pregnant women who suffer from cervical inflammation should not take doxycycline, ofloxacin, and levofloxacin. They should use antibiotics such as azithromycin or amoxicillin 500 mg for 3 times a day for a 7-day use dose.

Usually, these medicines will be given by prescription from your doctor. If in doubt, you can ask your doctor what are the side effects of these drugs.

How to prevent cervicitis during pregnancy


Now, after knowing how to treat it, of course you don't want to repeat the same mistakes and endanger your womb once again?
