Le vécu du toucher vaginal par les femmes en consultations prénatales

Abstract : The purpose of this report was to evaluate patients personal experiences regarding pelvic examination during prenatal consultations. The study included 97 primiparous women at least 32 weeks pregnant. According to the results, pelvic examination is neither a good nor a bad experience during pregnancy, even if the feeling is mainly positive. All the same, the examination causes apprehension (46,4%) and discomfort. Nevertheless, the examination reinsures more than half the patients (57,9%). Communicating information and obtaining the patient's consent inevitably condition the feeling pregnant women experience during the examination. It is therefore important to take into account the expectations and experiences of patients and to adapt our practices.
