It started a few weeks ago, I left a tampon in which I forgot about and had to go to the walk in centre to have it removed and have noticed it since then. I have been bloated for a while though. I have noticed any other changes and not on any medication although I did take the morning after pill about a month ago.

Hello,
It’s my first priority to serve you.
Thanks for providing more information.

Well as you describe,i really assure you that chances of cervical cancer are very less in your case.

Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the major cause of cervical cancer.

HPV infection is sexually transmitted.

As part of your regular pelvic exam, you would have a Pap test.

During a Pap test, the doctor scrapes a small sample of cells from the surface of the cervix to look for cell changes. If a Pap test shows abnormal cell changes, your doctor may do other tests to look for precancerous or cancer cells on your cervix.

As your doctor has already done pelvic exam with no indication of abnormal cervix cells then you shouldn't worry.

However it's good to proper treatment of your infection.

Apart from this,Motrin,warm compresses with a heating pad on affected area can be helpful.

Warm sitz bath with Kmno4 solution or betadine solution can be helpful.

Maintain a good hygiene.

Also avoid tampon use till you get rid of infection completely.
