History - on nuva-ring for a year.
Went to yearly exam, told vaginitis, given clindamycin cream. 2 months later heavy bleeding (had since changed to birth control pills), went to doctor - repeated biopsy, cultures - all negative- cervix still inflamed. Cryotherapy for 2 minutes - waited 3 weeks - minimal change, silver nitrate used next - follow up week later no change, cultures collected again, and cryotherapy for 3 min, awaiting results. Physician stated he thought I had micro-abscesses on the glands of my cervix. Any ideas on how to treat, it has been 2 months and very frustrated, sex will cause bleeding, abstaining until back to normal.

Mary - It sounds like a very frustrating situation. Inflammation of the cervix, or cervicitis, can sometimes be a chronic condition, but typically there's good response when it's caused by an underlying infection and the infection is treated. Is it possible that the initial bout with vaginitis wasn't cleared up by the Clindamycin and you're still dealing with the original infection?
