Age 22 – Days 18 & 19

This is the cervix of a 22 year old woman who has never given birth. She has a 31 day cycle and no history of STDs. 

About one year ago, she saw her gynecologist about frequent but odorless discharge and discomfort. Her gynecologist diagnosed her with cervical erosion (also called ectropion cervix) and advised her to stop using contraceptive pills for 3-4 months, since the hormones in the birth control pills can make the condition worse. Erosion did not worsen since coming off the pill and the cervical discharge reduced; no surgery was deemed necessary.
