Évaluation des séances d’éducation à la vie affective et sexuelle animées par les étudiantes sages-femmes auprès des lycéens de Clermont-Ferrand

Abstract : BACKGROUND : The 2001 law requires the provision of three sexual education sessions in schools. However, teenagers' knowledge in sexuality and contraception is still too imprecise : the abortionrate has remained relatively high and stable over the last ten years. METHODS : The main aim of this study was to assess the efficiency of sex education sessions delivered by student midwives. The entire study "before/after" was carried out with 86 voluntary students in three secondary schools in the Puy de Dôme area. RESULTS : The experiment resulted in an improvement of the average knowledge score by 12.6 points for the session on contraception (26.2 ± 7.0 out of 46 vs 38.8 ± 4.3 (p <0.001)) and by 9 points for the session on STIs (35.3 ± 9.2 out of 55 vs 44.3 ± 5.5 (p <0.001)). DISCUSSION : On the positive side, the education session enabled the teenagers to gain a full understanding of contraception, STIs and abortion. On the other hand, many more areas could still be improved, for example, the evaluation of the risks involved in pregnancy, the use of the ECPs and what to do in risky situations. CONCLUSIONS : Teenagers have difficulty understanding the risks involved in having sex, namely unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Sex education is essential in order to provide full understanding and to correct the misconceptions young people often have. It would seem that thestudent midwife is the most appropriate person to lead such sessions.
