Évaluation des connaissances et des sources d’information sur la contraception d’urgence chez les femmes de 18 à 35 ans en Île-de-France

Abstract : The rate of abortion in France has remained stable for several years, despite increasing availability of contraception and emergency contraception (EC).
Main objective: to assess the knowledge and information sources of women aged 18 to 35 on EC.
Methods: descriptive, prospective, multicentric study with descriptive analysis of the responses then bi-varied analysis by Chi-2 test. Included women were between 18 and 35 years old, consulting in general medicine between June and October 2018 in Île-de-France.
Results: 300 patients were included, the mean age was 26 years, 69% of patients had regular contraception, 16% had had an abortion and 57% had already used EC. Only 49% of patients had already been informed by their GP about EC. Free access to pharmacy was generally well known. The types of EC, their time of effectiveness and the absence of serious side effects were, however, not well known. The Internet was the main source of information cited before pharmacists and general practitioners (66.3%, 62.3% and 62% respectively). Study level, prior information on EC and abortion appeared to be determinative of EC use and patient knowledge.
Conclusion: patients' knowledge of EC remains to be improved, as is their information in general medical consultation. For this, it seems necessary to continue training doctors and continue to raise awareness among the general public.
