Liberté de choix en matière contraceptive au cours de consultations d’interruption volontaire de grossesse

Abstract : France has significant contraceptive coverage especially with prevention and awareness-raising policies implemented by the public authorities. Nevertheless, number of abortions (2/3 relate to contraceptive failure) is still relatively large and constitutes what is called a French paradox. The various health scandals that have been the subject of contraception in recent years have revived the debate around the question of the contraceptive norm that is still very present. The objective of this study is to determine if medical practices, during abortion consultations, allow women to actually choose their contraception. Ten consultations for abortion were observed in a family planning and education center and in a liberal doctor’s office, and eleven semi-directed interviews were conducted with the women who consulted. We demonstrated that if information about contraception, which could contribute to the free choice of contraception, existed, it could nevertheless be only partial and sometimes tinged with partiality. On the other hand, we found that the women observed and interviewed didn’t have sufficient knowledge of the various contraceptives available. And finally, our study reveals that freedom of choice in contraception is not fully real.
