Smoking among oral contraceptive users in Quebec in 1987.
To determine whether an association exists between oral contraceptive (OC) use and cigarette smoking, the data base of the 1981 Quebec Health Survey, a cross-sectional study of a provincial population, was sampled to provide a self-weighted subsample.
This study population consisted of 292 OC users and a comparison group of 294 non-users, who would have been eligible to use OCs by virtue of their lacking contraindications to their use. 50.5% (95% CI: 44.8%-56.2%) of OC users smoked, as opposed to 41.0% (95% CI: 35.3%-46.1%) of non-users.
There was a significant association between OC use and smoking; crude OR=1.41, 95% CI: 1.06-2.04, p=0.02.
