  1. Fulltext. The epidemiology of vulvovaginal candidiasis among university students.

    Article - En anglais


    Vulvovaginal candidiasis affects approximately 20% of women annually, but it is not well characterized epidemiologically.

    Of 1027 respondents to two mailed cross-sectional surveys at a large university, 37.5% reported a prior clinical diagnosis of vulvovaginal candidiasis.

    The frequency of first diagnosis increased rapidly after age 17 ; with an estimated 54.7% of women experiencing the condition by age 25.

    In a proportional hazards model of age at first diagnosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis was associated with initiation of sexual activity (rate ratio [RR]=2.9 ; 95% confidence interval [CI]=2.2,3.8), oral contraceptive use (RR=1.7 ; CI=1.4,2.2), and White (RR=3.1 ; CI=1.7,5.7) and Black (RR=5.9 ; CI=3.0,11.5) race vs Asian.
