Ectropion

An ectropion is when the inside of the cervix (endocervix), the part along the cervical canal, becomes everted on to the outside of the cervix. This is the area of the cervix exposed within the vagina.

Symptoms

The endocervix is more fragile, and can bleed with contact, such as from penetrative intercourse (bleeding after sex).

Treatment

Ectropion is common, and treatment is generally not required. When bleeding is persistent and troubling, women may consider ablative treatment such as cautery (electrosurgery). Colposcopy may also be used to diagnose and treat this area.
