Dysménorrhée primaire dans l’Océan Indien : une étude descriptive des pratiques médicales de premier recours

Abstract : Background: Despite some data known, like its very high prevalence, a major impact on quality of life, and effective treatments, the literature on primary dysmenorrhea is incomplete, especially with regard to the care provided by general practitioners. Method: We conducted a cross-sectional descriptive epidemiological study on the prescribing practices of general practitioners in the Indian Ocean, with the aim of informing the most frequently proposed treatments. Results: Prescription of NSAIDs, oral contraceptives and topical heat are the treatments most often offered, but many other treatments have been identified (up to 19 different therapeutic classes). Conclusion: The sample surveyed proposes, apart from major trends, a wide range of treatments that reflects the diversity of situations in general practice, but also the lack of a codified reference documentation for the management of primary dysmenorrhea. The proposed treatments remain largely discussed in the literature.
