Enquête d'opinion sur la contraception masculine : acceptabilité de nouveaux types de contraception

Abstract : Background: Contraception is a global health issue. Very few studies have focused on male contraception and investigated the opinion and acceptability of new methods, while clinical trials have been conducted for several decades. Methods: The two objectives of the study were to gather the opinions of men and women concerning the development of new methods of male contraception, but also concerning the current methods. A qualitative study was conducted in a medical school and an independent midwife's surgery in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with five women and five men. Results: Respondents show a mixed opinion and a lack of knowledge about current male contraceptive methods. They are in favor of the development of new male contraceptives, but feel that there is insufficient communication on this subject and dread potential adverse effects. Discussion: Specific psychosocial factors surround male contraception and materialize fears of a breach of masculinity in all its dimensions. The subject of male contraception is also linked to the issue of female sexual and contraceptive load. Conclusion: Major obstacles hamper the rise of male contraception, both because of the actors involved in its development and the population. Improved communication and further acceptability studies are needed.
