Abstract: Cervicitis is very common and characterized by an inflammation of the mucosa and sub mucosa of the cervix.Most often the bacterial and viral infections that cause Cervicitis are transmitted by sexual contact. Cervicitis is associated with Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae as the commonest cause, with Trichomonas vaginalis, herpes simplex virus, and Mycoplasma genitalium also as etiologic agents or conditions. Cervicitis that's caused by gonorrhea or Chlamydia can spread to the uterine lining and the fallopian tubes, resulting in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), an infection of the female reproductive organs that can cause fertility problems if left untreated. Antibiotics are prescribed for STIs with the drug resistance causing a major threat. Homeopathic literature has abundance of literature on the medicines that can be used for Cervicitis. Though there are a few studies showing the role of homoeopathic medicines in treatment Cervicitis there is a dearth of clinical studies depicting role of homoeopathic medicines in treating Cervicitis. Future observational studies and randomized control trials are suggested to ascertain the efficacy of homoeopathy in treatment of Cervicitis.
