Fluctuations in prevalence of cervical human papillomavirus in women frequently sampled during a single menstrual cycle.

van Ham MA, Melchers WJ, Hanselaar AG, Bekkers RL, Boonstra H, Massuger LF - Br. J. Cancer (2002)

Bottom Line: In the last few years much attention has been focused on the implementation of human papillomavirus detection in population based screening programmes to identify women at risk for cervical cancer.Short-term fluctuations in prevalence of human papillomavirus were investigated within a single menstrual cycle.The highest prevalence was found at the follicular phase (55%), whereas the cumulative prevalence was 75%.
