Is vaginal douching related to cervical carcinoma ?
The association between cervical carcinoma and vaginal douching was examined in a population-based case-control study conducted in the low-risk population of Utah between 1984 and 1987.
Essentially no association was found in women who douched once per week or less, but in those who douched more than once per week, a consistent relation was demonstrated.
Few differences were found with type of douching preparation used.
