Pilule œstro-progestative : pour ou contre

Abstract : Introduction: In December 2012, the complaint filed by a young woman LARAT Marion against a pharmaceutical laboratory because of a venous thromboembolic accident which occurred while she was using a 3rd generation estrogen-progestogen pill sparked an intense media debate on the safety of contraceptives . The controversy over the pill was strongly relayed and maintained via the media. The controversy that currently affects the progestinonly pill calls into question its contraceptive effectiveness but also the danger of its effects which would be largely underestimated. Objectives: Identify and analyze all the arguments in favor and against that fuel the controversy over the progestin-only pill in France. Identify the central issues of the controversy. List the opinions of the different authors by identifying their points of agreement and disagreement. Method: This study was conducted using the methodology of a controversial analysis. All the sources which published an opinion on the progestin-only pill and which were published after December 2012 were selected. Results : 53 sources were selected for this study. 19 sources were classified "For", 15 "Against", and 19 "Neutral". 105 arguments were put forward. The top 10 of the most cited arguments on POP in France has been created. Conclusion: This study has shed light on the multitude of arguments circulating on the estrogen-progestin pill, the fragility of their truths, as well as the involvement of the media in the maintenance of this controversy.
