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.
