MedlinePlus:34 The cervix is the lower part of the uterus, the place where a baby grows during pregnancy. the cervix has a small opening that expands during childbirth. it also allows menstrual blood to leave a woman's body. your health care provider may perform a pap test during your health checkup to look for changes to the cells of the cervix, including cervical cancer. other problems with the cervix include: cervicitis - inflammation of the cervix. this is usually from an infection. cervical incompetence - this can happen during pregnancy. the opening of the cervix widens long before the baby is due. cervical polyps and cysts - abnormal growths on the cervix

MalaCards: Vulvovaginal Candidiasis, also known as candidiasis of vulva and vagina, is related to candidiasis and bacterial vaginosis. An important gene associated with Vulvovaginal Candidiasis is MBL2 (mannose-binding lectin (protein C) 2, soluble), and among its related pathways are IL-15 Signaling and its Primary Biological Effects in Different Immune Cell Types and IL12 signaling mediated by STAT4. The drugs ketoconazole and miconazole and the compounds tuberculin and hbd2 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include cervix, testes and uterus, and related mouse phenotypes are renal/urinary system and digestive/alimentary.

Disease Ontology:8 A candidiasis that involves fungal infection of the vaginal mucous membranes in women caused by candida albicans. the symptoms include intense vulval pruritus, burning, erythema and dyspareunia associated with a creamy white, curd-like discharge.

CDC:4 Genital / vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is also sometimes called a "yeast infection," and it occurs when there is overgrowth of the normal yeast in the vagina. This infection is relatively common -- nearly 75% of all adult women have had at least one "yeast infection" in their lifetime.
