Cervicitis Treatment with Herbal Remedies


Inflammations of the cervix are extremely common and are present, to some extent, in virtually every multipara. The term cervicitis is reserved to infection of the endocervix including the glands and the stroma. The infection may be acute or chronic. It is caused by various kinds of bacteria like gonorrhea, chlamydia, genital herpes, ureaplasma, trichomoniasis, mycoplasma etc. passed during sexual intercourse. The endocervical infection usually follows childbirth, abortion or any operation on the cervix. The organisms gain entry into the glands of the endocervix and produce acute inflammatory changes. The infection may be localized or spread upwards to involve the tube or sideward involving the parametrium.



Cervicitis is an inflammatory condition that means inflamed or swelling tissues of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus opens into the vagina. They are caused by a variety of bacteria, many of which compose the normal flora of the vagina. This form of banal inflammation is referred to as nonspecific cervicitis.

Etiology and pathogenesis

Despite its commonplace occurrence, few data have been accumulated on the precise causes of this disorder. Specific infections by gonococci, trichomonas vaginalis, candida albicans, and herpes are clearly responsible for many cases of either acute or chronic cervicitis. However, the most commonly identified organisms are streptococci, enterococci, E.coli, and a variety of staphylococci. The vagina and the cervix normally contain a mixed flora that includes similar organisms. Predisposing causes to infection must then be sought. Trauma of childbirth, instrumentation in the course of gynecologic treatment, hyperestrinism, hypoestrinism, intercourse, excessive secretion of the cervical glands, high alkalinity of the cervical mucus, and congenital eversion of the endocervical mucosa have all been cited as predisposing influences.

Ayurvedic overview

In ayurveda, cervicitis can be closely related to agantuj vyadhi and vitiation of kapha dosha. Agantuj vyadhi are that are caused due to external factors like bacteria, virus, air, water, injury by stone, stick, weapons, effects of toxins and poison, or toxins, or other external factors e.g. ulcers, wounds. In these vyadhi (disease) dosha are involved later. Vitiation of kapha dosha

कफो अभिष्यन्दिभिर्वृद्धो योनि चेददूषयेत स्त्रिया:। स कुर्यात पिच्छिलां शीतां कण्डु ग्रस्ताल्पवेदनाम।। (च. चि . 30/13)

According to above shloka:- If kapha aggravated by channel-blocking things affect the genital tract of woman, it makes the track as slimy, cold, itching, with mild pain and pale and menstrual flow as pale and slimy. When a woman excessively uses all the rasas, all the three doshas located in genital tract and uterus produce their symptoms there. Thus the tract suffers from pain and has discharge as white and slimy.

Ayurvedic samprapti/pathogenesis

When the organism enters the cervix the doshas get vitiated which leads to further vitiation of rakta (blood), mamsa (tissues), and other dhatus and produce symptoms.
