What Are the Symptoms of Cervical Stenosis?

If you have intense pain during menstruation or no menstruation at all, you may be suffering from cervical stenosis, a condition where the cervix is either too narrow or fully closed, hampering the passage between the uterus and vagina. Interestingly, if you are infertile, or unable to conceive even after regular intercourse without protection, the reason behind it can be cervical stenosis. There are numerous causes to this condition but one of the major reasons can be infertility.

Cervical Stenosis Symptoms

In some women who have reached menopause, there may not be any symptoms. But those who have not attained menopause may notice the following symptoms of cervical stenosis:

  • Abnormal bleeding or Irregular menses during menstruation
  • Amenorrhea or no menstrual flow at all
  • Dysmenorrhea or immense pain during menstruation
  • Infertility, when the cervix completely blocks the sperm’s path to fallopian tubes
  • Conditions such as hematometra and pyometra

Cervical stenosis can occur in anyone and appropriate diagnosis and treatment is a must.
