Abstract

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) has been known as one of the sexually transmitted infections. HPV infection can cause serious health complications. The aim of this study was to determine the marital factors and husbands' demographic features associated with HPV infection among Iranian women. In this case-control study, 210 women were divided into two groups with and without the diagnosis of HPV infection. A standard questionnaire was used to obtain the marital and husbands' demographic history of each patient. Our findings showed that increasing marriage age (p=0.00) and having a self-employed husband (p=0.00) as two risk factors of HPV infection. Recognition of the marital factors and husbands' demographic features associated with genital HPV can help the health providers to find the high- risk women and developed the effective strategies for prevention.
