Zhonghua Liu Xing Bing Xue Za Zhi 26(8): 583-587



To study the prevalence of child-bearing age women with reproductive tract infection (RTI) and related risk factors in the rural area of Shandong so as to develop measurements on prevention. Four communities were randomly selected based on economic levels and a baseline investigation on RTI was carried out. A total prevalence rate of RTI was 47.57% with breakdown for four communities-Zhucheng, Zhangqiu, Daiyue and Wudi as 53.91%, 41.49%, 48.37%, 44.88% respectively. Nearly 60% of women at child-bearing age were ignorant on sexually transmitted diseases (STD). Risk factors of RTI would include incorrect perineum cleanout, bad habit of sexual intercourse and low education level of the husbands. High prevalence of RTI was associated with low level of education, lack of awareness on STD related hygiene and low rate of seeing doctor for RTI disorder in those women. The results of this study would benefit to the development of intervention measurement of RTI.
