Tammy McNee shares her story about her experience with cervical ectropion.
What is Cervical ectropion?
Cervical ectropion, or cervical ectopy, is when the soft cells (glandular cells) that line the inside of the cervical canal spread to the outer surface of your cervix. The outside of your cervix normally has hard cells (epithelial cells).
Where the two types of cells meet is called the transformation zone.
This condition is sometimes referred to as cervical erosion. That name is not only worrisome and scary but also misleading. You can rest assured that your cervix isn’t really eroding.
Cervical ectropion is fairly common among women of childbearing age.
Rest assured, it’s not cancerous and doesn’t affect fertility.
