Gestion de l’oubli de contraception orale : intérêt pratique de l’application Pill’Oops versus la carte INPES

Abstract : Context: 23% of unwanted pregnancies occur to women on the pill, after missing tablets, in 6 out of 10 cases. Litterature has shown a global ignorance of women concerning the line to take in case they forget their pill, and the low impact of the INPES card, concerning help to run the situation.The objective was to compare the practical interest of the Pill'Oops® application, to run such situations, compared to the INPES paper document. Method: a randomised observational prospective study was conducted towards family doctors and chemists in the Landes from May to November 2018. The women concerned were the ones up to 18 years-old, on a contraceptive pill, visiting their doctor for any reason, or their chemist to get a contraceptive pill. These women were either given the INPES card or an information document about Pill’Oops and had to complete a short survey. They were contacted again 3 months later. Results: 165 patients were initially included : 81 patients got the information documents about Pill’Oops® and 84 patients got an INPES Card. After 3 months, most of them had neither kept the card nor downloaded the app, in spite of a 47% rate of missed pills on the 3 months. Young age groups (18-25 y-o) and students were keener than others on Pill’Oops®. And among the women who had either downloaded the Pill’Oops® or kept the INPES card, the app had been more consulted and used than the card. Conclusion: the Pill’Oops app appears to be a helpful tool - and specifically for young generation - to run sitations of missed pills, but a larger study is needed to confirm these results.
