La place des sages-femmes en sexologie : étude descriptive auprès des sages-femmes sexologues de la région Rhône-Alpes

Abstract : The main objective of this study was to describe the needs of patients followed by a sexologist midwife. The secondary objective was to describe the context in which the women came to consultation. We did a multicenter, cross-sectional descriptive study; Study locations: The hospital of Voiron, and private practices in Bourgoin-Jallieu and Lyon; Study period: 1st of September 2014 to 31st of August 2015. The women's main reasons for consultation concerned desire disorders (33.3%) and dyspareunia (28.3%), where as the sexologist midwives mostly diagnosed vaginismus (40%); mainly primary vaginismus (28.3 %), as well as desire disorders (36.7%). Most of the women were directed to the sexologist midwife by an obstetrician gynecologist (45.1%), a general practitioner (21.6%) or by a midwife (19.6%). 7.8% of the women were directed to the sexologist midwife by another professional sexologist. The management of sexuality should be part of the overall care of health. This study was conducted to raise awareness among midwives on how important it is to focus on women's sexuality and couples in order to diagnose possible problems and direct patients if necessary.
