In brief: Avoid STDs

Cervical dysplasia is caused by hpv or human papillomavirus which is a sexually transmitted virus.
Using condoms can protect against 70% of hpv transmission. Limiting your number of partners and choosing partners wisely is also important.

In brief: Condoms partly

Condoms can protect but only partially from hpv and its initial effect on the cervix called dysplasia.
Abstinence is a sure bet however to protect from the problem, just not as much fun! not smoking and using Folic Acid may also prevent or at least optimize your immune system from clearing an infection if you get one.
