My gyn said I had cervicitis after a slightly abnormal Pap and a follow-up colposcopy. No medication was required. Now I'm reading that cervicitis can be an opportunistic infection. Is this true? How concerned should I be? Is my physician taking this lightly? Thanks for your insight.
Response from Dr. Feinberg
cervicitis is not an HIV/AIDS-associated opportunistic infection. In fact it is a common problem in women whether they are HIV- or HIV+.
Toxo/PML-which is it?
