The original article was published in BMC Women's Health 2015 15:108

After publication of the original article [1] it was brought to our attention that tables two and three (here, Tables 1 and 2) contained incorrect data in question 7 and 11. The correct tables are included below. Changes in the tables do not affect the conclusions drawn in the study.
