Vécu et niveau de littératie en santé chez les femmes infertiles ayant un syndrome des ovaires polykystiques

Abstract : Objectives: To highlight the experience and health literacy level of infertile Internet users women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) Methods: Qualitative study by inductive method conducted on infertile women with PCOS that share their self-experience on internet forums. Results: 785 comments were analyzed, from 211 women on 7 discussion forums. A delayed diagnosis and a lack of information regarding PCOS have been identified. PCOS and infertility were associated with an anxio-depressive syndrome, compounded by low health literacy levels. This one seemed to be improved by the knowledge exchanges and experiential learning enabled by the Internet forums. Conclusion: Infertile women with PCOS consulting internet forums suffered from anxio-depressive syndrome and low health literacy level. These elements seem to be improved by informations collected in internet forums, suggesting the fundamental role of the active involvement of these women in their care.
