Research on inflammatory bowel disease risk among oral contraceptive users has reached conflicting conclusions.
This population-based case-control study evaluated the effects of oral contraceptive use on ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease risk.
Cases were women enrollees, aged 15-68 years, of Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound (a prepaid health plan based in western Washington State) who had ulcerative colitis (n=211) or Crohn's disease (n=91).
Age-matched controls were randomly selected from the health plan enrollment file.
An in-person interview obtained information about lifetime contraceptive use.
Conditional logistic regression analysis was used to estimate relative risks and 95% confidence intervals for disease.
