Spotting between periods, post sex. Pelvic exam shows cervical erosion. Can this affect fertility?

I was told I had a raw cervix during my last pelvic exam several weeks ago. I ve been spotting between periods and after sex. Results are negative for disease/ Hpv . I m married and have never used douche or spermicides. I am looking up cervical erosion online and there is conflicting info about infertility. We aren t actively trying but I am not using bc and we aren t tracking ovulation. I have been off the pill since last September and haven t gotten pregnant but again we aren t actively trying. Should I be concerned about the diagnosis of cervical erosion?

Thanks for writing to us.
Cervical erosion does not usually cause problem in conception or delivery unless there is deep scarring of cervix present. These cervical lesions can be easily treated with cryotherapy. You can get the proper treatment done at your gynecologist's.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
