In brief: Cervical cancer
This depends on your genes, your lifestyle, how many sexual partners you have had and whether or not you have unprotected sex.
A vaccine is available that can give some woman protection against some vaccines implicated in causing cervical caner. Your rish rises dramatically if you are having frequent unprotected sex.

Cervical cancer is caused by human papilloma virus, and is a sexually transmitted disease. Get the vaccine(men and women), and always use protection!

In brief: Infection by HPV
There are several known factors that increase the risk of cervical cancer.
First intercourse at a young age, sexual promiscuity, and a high number of pregnancies correlate positively with cervical cancer incidence. Approximately 50 to 60% of invasive cervical cancers show infection with human papillomavirus, hpv, types 16 and/or 18, which are sexually transmitted. Cigarette smoking may up risk2.
