Évaluation des connaissances des femmes et des hommes majeurs au sujet de l'anatomie génitale féminine en Normandie Occidentale en 2021

Abstract : Introduction: In the 21st century, sexuality is still taboo. To properly grasp it, it’s necessary to have a good knowledge of human anatomy. The purpose of our study was to evaluate female genital’s anatomy’s knowledge in general population. Methods: We interrogated people on anatomy’s scheme, questions and means of information that they jugged credible. Our survey was accessible via a QR code in waiting rooms of doctors and midwifes. Results: In total, we gathered 1106 responses. Our population had 80% female organs and the average age was 35.3 years old. More than 2/3 of our respondents had over 70% of good answers. A high education level and the use of contraception with vaginal insertion were associated with better results. Medical professions were considered highly credible compared to Internet or social media. Discussion: Ours results were mostly consistent with other studies. However, clitoris and perineum’s knowledge are two weaknesses of the respondents in our study. Conclusion: Medical professionals should keep forming themselves about sexual education and use the news means of information to improve their patients’ heath knowledge. So that they could understand better their own body, other people’s body, a diagnosis or a treatment.
