Connaissances des femmes sur les organes reproducteurs et la reproduction : étude transversale multicentrique réalisée sur un échantillon de 249 femmes consultant dans les services d’IVG dans le Sud et l’Ouest de l’île de la Réunion

Abstract : Introduction: The number of abortions in France has been steady for the past ten years (around 220,000 per year). La Reunion is one of the departments where the abortion rate is the highest, especially among minors. Objectives: Study the knowledge on the reproduction, the reproductive system and the involvement of beliefs on their knowledge among patients consulting for an abortion in La Reunion. Determine the sociodemographic characteristics of the patients who have the least knowledge. Know the sources of information of these patients. Method: Cross-sectional study across 2 different Hospitals (CHU of Saint Peter and Saint Paul CHGM), made on the basis of a questionnaire distributed to abortion services. Results: 249 questionnaires have been used. The patients in our study were more often unemployed, in training, with a low level of education, or single: these patients are those who had lowest number of good answers. We have found a strong link between educational achievement and results of patients (p <10-9). The preferred information sources are mainly parents, teachers and school nurses. It remains an impregnation of La Reunion beliefs in knowledge of patients. Conclusion: The Patients in this study have a lack of knowledge about the reproductive system and its operation. Reflections around the intervention of local interlocutors and sexual education on the national level could help improve this information.
