Abstract:

Background: Studies have shown that human papillomavirus HPV screening is protective against the development of cervical cancer. Early initiation of sexual activities, the number of sexual partners, smoking, and according to Zur Hausen, the presence of "mutagenic" infections, are all risky factors for the development of cervical cancer. Methods: This investigation consisted of descriptive observation of 200 sexually active women 18-30 years old, taking into account the mutagenic frequency of several infections in the general population. Results: The infections incidences in the study population were: HPV, 13.5%; Staphylococcus spp., 46.5%; Streptococcus spp., 4.0%; Trichomonas virginals, 4.5%; genus Candida, 25.5%; herpes simplex, 0%; and Chlamydia trachomatis, 5%. Conclusions: Fisher's Chi-square test was applied to socioeconomic data and infections data, but no significant associations were uncovered between the presence of HPV and any of the factors listed.
