Cervical Erosion

Cervical erosion is a common misnomer describing the appearance of the cervix as it changes from pink and smooth to red and rough. It is commonly seen in women who are sexually active, taking oral contraceptive pills, pregnant or after delivering natural childbirth. 

Cervical erosion is a physiological condition which will not lead to cervical cancer and has no connection with other gynaecological diseases. Since it is benign in nature and does not warrant treatment, women with this condition only need to have regular pap smears to ensure cervical health, as for all healthy women.
