Perceptions des femmes en couple sur la participation du partenaire à la consultation d’information à la contraception

Abstract : Women would like to see their partners more involved in contraception decisions. 90% of french people believe contraceptive decisions should be a joint decision. Would women be in favor of a consultation with their partner to discuss contraceptives? The main objective was to focus on the female perspective of having a medical consultation with their partner to discuss contraception alternatives. The second objective was to see how the couple’s perspective regarding contraception choice changed following the medical consultation with their partner. This study was carried out with 21 women in a relationship. Women are ranged from 18 to 43 years old. The study took place in the Health Center in Morangis, Bicêtre hospital (family planning unit) and at Maison des Jeunes de la Culture in Viry-Châtillon. Studies showed that women tended to be indecisive as to whether contraception choice was a women’s decision or a joint partner choice. Factors influencing their choice seemed to be their expectations, definition of a couple and their relationship. A medical consultation as a couple was an option if it was the women’s choice. The time of the medical consultation with the partner varied amongst women: beginning of a relationship, in a stable relationship, in the case of pregnancy, difficulty with current contraceptive. The objective of the couple medical consultation was to have joint decision making in contraceptive choice best adapted to their couple. A medical consultation as a couple is a mean to involve a women’s partner in joint decision making regarding contraceptives. A medical consultation as a couple should be recommended if a woman views contraception as a joint decision.
