Abstract

Human Papilloma Virus genital infections are, especially during fertile age, a very common finding in performing PAP smear and colposcopy. The interest in these infections arises from their frequent association with dysplasia and their possible role in the etiology of carcinoma of the lower genital tract. The natural history of HPV infections is not very well known and foreseen. Epidemiological studies indicate that the progression, regression or stability of induced HPV lesions are correlated with cofactors which are considered risk factors in carcinoma of the lower genital tract. The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of estroprogestinic contraception and other methods on the evolution of the HPV genital infections.
