État des lieux des connaissances sur les applications smartphones en matière de contraception : revue de la littérature

Abstract : Introduction. Women's knowledge of contraception is incomplete. Various sources of information are used. Since the advent of smartphones, 325,000 health App are available. The goal is to conduct a literature review about smartphone applications for contraception. Method. 15 databases were searched in English, Spanish and French. Included were studies published between 2007 and 2018, describing or comparing mobile applications for reversible contraceptive methods, and interventional studies. The quality of the studies was assessed using the Cochrane scale or a scale created by the authors. Results. 1,786 articles were listed, 22 were included on full text. In 2 randomized controlled trials, App did not influence the choice of a contraceptive method. Two studies showed a significant improvement in knowledge after using the App. Comparative studies reported a large number of App, most of which contained only incomplete information and few interactive features. Conclusion. Many applications deal with contraception, but few have reliable and exhaustive information. Further studies are needed to measure the impact of App on contraceptive compliance.
