Brief Answer:
You need to get an evaluation from a OB/GYN

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,

Irritation in the cervix (cervicitis) is a sign which can be encountered in many conditions.
I exclude infections, since you do not have any pain or other symptoms related to it.
Allergies may be possible. There are known cases of allergy from the latex in the condom.
Multiple partners can cause this irritation.
Vaginal ph changes can be a cause as well, and birth control implantations need to be considered.
Lastly, a Pap test needs to be taken, just to make sure that there is no risk of cancer.

As you may well see, the diagnosis of your condition can vary a lot, thus you need to see a specialist that can do all the proper exams and that can offer you the right treatment for you case.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health!
