1: binary analysis
Factors associated with cell differentiation
Previous history of STI versus none 1.39 0.39-4.90 0.623
History of modern contraceptive use versus never used 0.16 0.06-0.49 0.001
Age at first delivery before 18 years versus ≥ 18 years 0.64 0.23-1.78 0.389
History of multiple sexual partners in one’s lifetime versus none 0.98 0.32-3.01 0.968
Age > 50 years versus ≤ 50 years 1.91 0.70-5.24 0.209
Factors associated with HIV serostatus
Previous history of STI versus none 3.43 1.09-10.79 0.035
History of modern contraceptive use versus never used 5.79 1.99-16.83 0.001
Age at first delivery before 18 years versus ≥18 years 1.78 0.64-4.91 0.272
History of multiple sexual partners in one’s lifetime versus none 5.56 1.18-26.25 0.030
Age > 50 years versus ≤50 years 0.09 0.02-0.36 0.001

Binary (unadjusted) logistic regression: HIV and cancer cell differentiation (poorly differentiated versus well and moderately differentiated) 0.21 0.04-1.02 0.053
Multivariate (adjusted) logistic regression: HIV and cancer cell differentiation (poorly differentiated versus well and moderately differentiated) * 5.62 1.76-17.94 0.004
  1. * adjusted for ever used modern contraception or not.
