The authors discuss safety issues in the modern treatment for cervical pre-cancer, particularly cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). They present two studies that analyzed the possible harms to human reproduction of the CIN treatments, particularly on fertility. Also examined is the possibility that human papillomavirus infection contributes to the development of preterm labour.
