본 연구는 우리나라 여성을 대상으로 경구피임약 복용과 치주질환의 관련성을 분석하여 피임약이 치주질환에 미치는 영향을 파악하고자 하였다. 연구자료는 제4기 국민건강영양조사 자료 중 2008년과 2009년 결과를 이용하였고, 19-50세 폐경 전 가임여성 1,101명을 대상자로 선정하였다. 인구사회경제적 요인과 구강보건행태, 피임약 복용기간 및 치주질환 상태를 파악하여 chi-square 검정과 logistic regression 분석을 통해 경구피임약 복용과 치주질환과의 관련성을 조사하였다. 그 결과, 인구사회경제적 요인 중 연령과 결혼여부, 흡연상태가 경구피임약 복용과 통계적인 유의성을 나타내었다. 현재 경구피임약 복용여부와 치은조직 상태는 연관성이 없는 것으로 확인되었다. 치주질환 유병율은 연령에 따라 증가하였지만, 피임약 복용기간과 흡연, 칫솔질과 치간관리를 포함한 구강보건형태와는 통계적으로 유의한 차이를 보이지 않았다. 마지막으로 logistic regression 분석 결과, 혼란변수 보정여부에 따라 큰 차이 없이 치주질환은 경구피임약 복용여부 및 복용기간과 관련성이 없는 것으로 확인되었다.
