Cervical ectropion - Chronic Cervical ectropion, cervical erosion

What is Cervical ectropion(cervical erosion)?

Normally, the cervix looks pink and shiny. It has a hole in the middle, where the menstrual blood passes out from the uterus (womb) into the vagina. In some women, the area round the hole looks red and velvety instead of pink and shiny. If you have cervical ectropion, it means that some cells which are usually only found in the cervical canal were found on the cervix itself.

It seems that cells on the cervix become columnar when there is a lot of the hormone oestrogen around. Therefore ectropion is most common in women on the contraceptive pill and during pregnancy.
