La pratique du frottis cervico-utérin avant 25 ans

Abstract : In clinical practice, a significant number of pap smears are done before the recommended age of 25.
Objectives : Establish the actual situation of the professionnals' practices and understand the causes of early cervical screening and the prescribers' motivations.
Method : Quantitative research based on 137 questionnaires sent to general practionners, gyneacologists and midwives.
Results : 36% of the healthcare professionals made pap smear before 25. Patient's demand, non knowning of the recommendations, and more than 15 years of experience seemed to be associated with early screening. The age at the first sexual intercourse, and multiple sex partners are well known risk factors. Some causes have been found, but a study with less bias and in a larger scale would be interesting.
