Connaissances et réticences à l’utilisation du dispositif intra‐utérin : enquête descriptive auprès de 150 patientes consultant un centre hospitalo‐universitaire parisien et le centre de planification et d’éducation familiale de Provins (Seine‐et‐Marne)

Abstract : Introduction: In France, one in three pregnancies is unintended. Among these pregnancies, two‐thirds occur despite the use of contraception. The intrauterine device (IUD) is a safe, effective and well-tolerated mean of contraception. This work aimed to identify the reticence and knowledge of women about the use of an IUD. Method: Descriptive survey from self-administered questionnaires completed by 150 patients younger than 45 years consulting at a Parisian university hospital and at the family planning center of the small city of Provins (population 12,000). Results: The main concerns voiced by order of frequency were: fear of the laying (39%), fear of feeling the IUD(36%), fear that the body does not accept the IUD as a foreign body (35%), fear of discomfort during sexual intercourse (29%). Most patients knew that the IUD is safe and effective. 65% of patients knew it could be used in nulliparous patients. 96% of patients said they had ever been informed about the IUD. 48% of patients were favorable to the IUD. 16 patients (14%) were using the IUD. The factors that influenced the rate of IUD use were the number of children, age, education level and ethnicity. Conclusion: The IUD is well known by women, but it remains reticence to which any doctor should be able to respond to improve contraceptive efficacy in order to prevent the occurrence of unintended pregnancies.
