La contraception intra-utérine : une méthode de choix pour les nullipares ? Étude qualitative : entretiens auprès de 17 femmes nullipares

Abstract : Introduction : In France, according to the 2016 health barometer, 25,6% of woman using contraception, wear an IUC. However 98,7% of them had already give birth. This method has many advantages. Its high efficiency addresses the public health problem regarding unwanted pregnancies caused by a contraceptive failure leading to abortion. By the way, in 2015, HAS recalled that the IUC is recommended as a first mesure whatever parity, included therefore, nulliparas. But does the IUC meet their contraceptive needs?
Method : Our qualitative study, we interviewed, in the form of semi-structured interviews, 17 nulliparous patients leaving a contraception consultation. The interview transcripts were analyzed using a chart.
Results : Nulliparas are clearly part of the French contraceptive system. They don’t have a lot of benefit from the GATHER method carried out by reluctant practitioners. Thus, the subject of IUC was only broached for half of the participants. The fear of posing and of pain takes precedence over the motivations they put forward. The popular belief of a link between IUC and infertility is still rooted in the collective subconscious.
Conclusion : Women show great interest in the IUC and their needs match its characteristics. Up-to-date information, delivered by a professional using “cou nselling” helps to allay fears. “Sterilet” should be remplaced by “intra uterine contraception” to eradicate false beliefs.
