D’un moyen de contraception à l’autre : choix, accompagnement & pratiques : étude descriptive menée auprès de femmes de 17 à 41 ans en centre de planification et planning familial

Abstract : Objectives: To determine the motives for change of contraception of women today and the practices inherent to this. Patients and method: Study carried out by questionnaire with women consulting in planning centers and family planning clinics in the city of Grenoble. Results: Among the 197 distributed questionnaires, 68 were included in this study. More than 64% of the women had at least three motives for changing their means of contraception. Intolerance is most frequently quoted motive (42.7%) and in second place, the wish not to use a hormonal method (32.6%). In 85% of the cases, the women discussed this change either with a professional or with someone from their circle of acquaintances. Only 41% of the women consider the received information as personalized and 68% sufficient. For a third of the women having had a moment of transition between both means of contraception, the cause was due to an excessive waiting period to get an appointment. The rate of voluntary termination of pregnancy during the period of transition was 18%. Discussion and conclusion: The obtained results put forward the difficulty for women to find a means of contraception which is really adapted to them, the intolerance being the motive most frequently quoted. The wish not to use hormonal method is demonstrated with the important decrease of the use of the pill. Efforts concerning the information and the support of this change are necessary to better satisfy women and to decrease the occurrences of unwanted pregnancy.
