Prescription anticipée de la contraception d'urgence : qui et pourquoi ? Identification des facteurs l'influençant à partir d'une expérience autour de Saintes en Charente-Maritime

Abstract : Background. The anticipated prescription of emergency contraception increases its accessibility, by advance delivering. The objective of this study is to identify factors that influence this prescription. Method. A descriptive survey by 2 auto-questionnaires was led on 2 target populations. Sample of women was constituted among Saintes' family planning patients, sample of general practioners was recruited by mail. Datas were collected from October, 2014 to January, 2015. The 2 populations were described, then reported prescriptions were studied by bivariate analysis. Results. 78 women were icluded. Only 7 anticipated propositions were proposed, made by majority by midwives, for underage patients, with low level of education, in a relationship, having already taken morning after pill, using pill for less than 1 year, and having recently forgotten it. 94 general practitioners were included, among 273 requested. 50 % refused to administer by advance, for fear of misuse, for lack of knowledge, and for not assessing the usefulness. Other factors identified to support anticipated prescription are absent contraception, use of condom, history of abortion, and request made by the patient. Impediments related to women are the lack of pregnancy risk perception, the lack of informations, and social judgement. Doctors are not sufficiently attentive to the medication intake period. Conclusion. Numerous factors were identified. General practionners and women’s lack of knowledge on emergency contraception is worrisome.
