Hello april7389,
Not having health insurance makes getting medical care difficult and very expensive. Is there a free health clinic in your community? Are you eligible for Medicaid?

I can give you information and suggestions, but a diagnosis can only be made by a healthcare professional, in person, not over the internet. The cause of your symptoms can only be identified by physical examination and blood tests.

I am guessing that the chronic cervical infection might be cervicitis. Cervicitis is inflammation of the cervix. It is a common infection. Depending on the cause of the infection, either antibiotics or antiviral medications are prescribed.

Since the pain has returned, you need to contact the healthcare provider who prescribed the medication. At that time, report your other symptoms.
