You're at greater risk of cervicitis if you:

  • Engage in high-risk sexual behavior, such as unprotected sex or sex with multiple partners
  • Began having sexual intercourse at an early age
  • Have a history of sexually transmitted infections

You may also be at increased risk if you have sex with a partner who has engaged in high-risk sexual behavior or has had a sexually transmitted infection.
