The Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, who made this known yesterday at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago – Iwoye, added that HPV has been implicated in “about 99% of cases of cancer of the cervix.”Delivering the institution’s 91st inaugural lecture titled; “Female Reproductive Structure and Function: Bane of Women in the Developing Countries,” he said immunisation against the virus before the female genital tract is exposed to it could prevent the development of cervical cancer.

Citing WHO recommendation, he said 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

Adetola also advised ladies and women to go for early detection check through “cervical screening” as another way of preventing the development of the deadly cancer of the cervix..According to him, “cervical screening” is quite cheap as such screening cost only N500 at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital(OOUTH), Sagamu.

He said there is no iota of truth to that, adding that given how uterus with fibroid looks like and nodules excised from it at surgery, one should wonder if fibroid could be passed out from the anus as believed by women.He also advised that the definitive treatment of uterine fibroids is by surgical removal of the fibroid nodules – myomectomy for young ones that still need to have babies or outright removal of the whole uterus (hysterectomy) in women that have concluded child bearing.

On reproductive failures, Adetola identified blockage of the fallopian tubes and failure to ovulate as the major causes of infertility in women while in men, it could be caused by inadequate or absence of spermatozoa in semen.He noted that unsafe abortion and sexually transmitted infections are the common predispositions to tubal blockage in women and advised infertile couples to seek professional help for solutions to their problems.
