ABSTRACT

Background: Cancer of cervix is a common cancer that affects Indian women physically, psychologically, socially and financially in a grave manner. The disease affects not just the women but also her family and society. Development of cervical dysplasia is highly associated with age of first coitus and number of conception of women. This study was designed to study the correlation between sexual and personal habits of women and cervical dysplasia. Aims and Objective: This study was designed to study the sexual and personal habits of women undergoing screening for cervical dyplasia. Methods: A cross sectional study was done at the community health centre (CHC), Muradnagar, Ghaziabad (UP) in 2015-17. A sample size of1250 women was taken as per the eligibility criteria as aged above 30 years of age attending Gynaecology OPD at Community Health Center examined by using visual inspection using acetic acid (VIA) technique on uterine cervix . Those found to be VIA positive ,were sent for biopsy to confirm any dysplastic changes. The data was analyzed using SPSS version 17 (Statistical Package of Social Sciences) with the appropriate statistical tests. Results: Out of 1250 women 14 were found to be VIA positive, out of which 4 cases came out to be positive for dysplasia after doing biopsy under colposcopy. Conclusions: Contribution of male partner in development of CIN changes was also reflected in our study in cases where male partner was not using condom, was actively smoking or was having multiple sexual partners. These findings reveal that male partner has a significant contribution in development of CIN changes and thereby sexual health education of male partners is the need of the hour.

Keywords: Cervical dysplasia, VIA screening, CIN changes (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia), Contribution of male partner (Condom usage), Smoking, Multiple sex partner.
