Question: What is the Treatment for Cervical Erosion?
Answer: Cervical erosion is treated in various ways depending on the cause. If an infection is present, antibiotics are necessary. When cervical erosion is caused by trauma to the cervix, either by injury or a chemical such as vaginal douches, avoiding the cause and time to heal are the only treatments. Sometimes cervical cauterization is used to treat cervical erosion. Your health care provider may also prescribe vaginal estrogen cream to help thicken the outer surface of the cervix.
