To cheat in a committed relationship means one has broken their partner's trust and they have shown that they are rather irresponsible with other people's feelings.
It is not advisable to cheat and any sort of intention to that effect has to be thrown out of the door. But a relationship is not necessarily broken because a woman or a man cheated.
A relationship where one partner cheats can always be saved even if we can accept that not all offended people take their hurt the same way. Some might be harder to win back.
There are certain things you can do to win back the trust and love of those who you have hurt. But you would need to treat the whole process as a petition and not fulfilling some requirements to gain back admission.

As follows are the ways.
1. Do not look to justify what you did
At this point, we are assuming that you already have the humility to say you are sorry. So do not justify what you did in anyway.
Even if you think it was not wholly your fault, wear the shame and blame. To find excuses makes your partner think you do not truly mean to be forgiven.
2. Do not assume you can buy your way back
If you are a woman, do not assume you can "beautify" your way back into being forgiven. If you have money too, do not assume it can save you at this point.
You may worsen the issue if you think materialism or physical appearance can heal the pain.
3. Check up on the hurt one without expecting anything
Most often when people say they are sorry, they automatically want to be forgiven. It does not work that way.
Just ask how they are doing and know that they are under no compulsion to talk to you. One of these days, they are going to break and say all that things they are keeping inside.

4. Bring back the old times
You would have to re-double your efforts to do those things that made your partner fall in love with you. That is the point of coming back.
But the final say is not in your hands. Yours is to remind them why you are still special despite your mistakes.
