Obstetrician Reveals Dangers of Early Sexual Intercourse

A Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Adetola Olatunji, has warned girls and ladies to shun early sexual intercourse and having multiple sex partners to avert the risks of developing deadly cervical cancer.

He made this known at the 91st inaugural lecture of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State.

The Gynaecologist titled the lecture, “female reproductive structure and function: bane of women in the developing countries.”

According to him, cancer of the cervix is common and sexually transmitted, explaining that, it is caused by a microorganism called Human Papilloma Virus; adding that, HPV has been implicated in about ninety-nine percent of cases of cancer of the cervix.

Recommendation of World Health Organization has it that, boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 12 years should be vaccinated against the virus before they start having sexual contact which would expose them to the HPV infection and subsequent transmission to the female genital tract by the male.

He noted that unsafe abortion and sexually transmitted infections are the common predispositions to tubal blockage in women; he advised infertile couples to seek professional help for solutions.

Meanwhile, he wants Nigerian women to take seriously the importance of hospital care at all times; as diseases that affect the structures that bear forth children can both be prevented or cured when presented to the Gynaecologist at a very early stage.
