Grossesses non prévues : significations et fonctions : un autre regard sur l’interruption volontaire de grossesse

Abstract : OBJECTIVE : Highlighting that some unplanned pregnancies carry a meaning and a purpose, to broader perspectives on abortion. METHOD : 14 semi-structured interviews were conducted among women under the age of 21 years old, primigest, consulting for or after a termination. The study took place from Septembre to December 2013 at the family planning center of the Pitié-Salpêtrière. RESULTS : Unplanned pregnancy are rarely random but can be the expression of ambivalence and of desire for pregnancy, for having a child or even a desire unrelated to motherhood altogether. Although these pregnancies need to be terminated, they can be meaningfull and should not be only associated with incorrect knowledge or use of contraceptive methods. Making a distinction should lead to a more satisfactory follow up of women.
