My 15 years old daughter has cervical erosion. I thought this only occurred in sexually active women, so does it mean she is having sexual intercourse?
An erosion, more properly called a cervical ectopy, is the normal state just after puberty. At this time, the cervix changes shape and the delicate lining of the cervical canal 'pouts' onto the vaginal surface of the cervix. Erosion has nothing to do with sexual activity and can certainly occur in virgins.
