La reprise des rapports sexuels dans le postpartum : étude observationnelle menée en Savoie auprès de 193 femmes lors de la visite post-natale

Abstract : Objectives. Assess the frequency of resumption of sexual activity during the postnatal visit. The secondary objectives were to measure the time between birth and resumption of sexual intercourse, to assess the pain when resumption of sexual intercourse through the Analogical Visual Scale (EVA), but also to assess the association between the resumption of sexual intercourse and the presence or absence of perineal tear. Methods. We conducted an observational, declarative and retrospective study on a population of 193 patients who gave birth between the first july 2017 and the first December 2017. The survey was conducted in three maternities at level I, level IIA and level III of Savoy and in liberal midwives' offices. The objectives of the study were to assess the frequency of resumption of sexual activity at the post-natal visit, the delay of this resumption, the pain reported (EVA) and the impact of a perineal tear on this resumption. Results. The response rate for questionnaires was 66.5%. Of the surveyed population, 77.2% of women had resumed sexual activity during the post-natal visit and 49% of the women surveyed had resumed sexual activity between 21 and 28 days. The average pain assessed by EVA was 2.7. We have not found any association between the resumption of sexual intercourse and the presence of a perineal tear. Conclusion. Most patients resume sexual activity in the postpartum. The turnaround time and pain assessed by EVA are consistent with the literature. The presence or absence of perineal tearing does not therefore affect the resumption of intercourse.
