La contraception testiculaire thermique : une méthode contraceptive encore trop peu connue : étude descriptive auprès des médecins généralistes d’Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes par questionnaire auto-administré

Abstract : Introduction: Despite the existence of a wide range of contraceptive options, the increase in number of abortions reflects the need to provide new contraceptive solutions and to place the couple at the heart of the debate. In contrast to the large number of contraceptive options for women, the arsenal of devices for men is still limited. Thermal male contraception, developed 30 years ago, still suffers a lack of medical democratization which counterbalances with men’s growing interest in it. Yet, General Practitioners, who are the main prescribers of contraception, do not seem sufficiently informed to offer this alternative to their patients. Objectives: To carry out an inventory of the knowledge of General Practitioners about thermal testicular contraception in the AURA region. Analysis of their representations of thermal testicular contraception (TTC) and their motivation to benefit from additional information. Material and method: Realization of a quantitative cross-sectional study of descriptive type via a questionnaire sent by mail to the physicians or distributed by the CDOM in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes between July 2021 and September 2021. The results were analyzed using the Jamovi software with the Chi2 test. Results: We included 153 responses in the analysis. Among these, 30.1% of doctors appeared to be aware of the TTC, most notably in the form of the undergarment (29.1% versus 17.9% for the ring). The location of practice, additional training courses about contraception and the mode of practice (planning or orthogenetic center) all have a statistically significant link with the knowledge of the TTC among the doctors questioned. After presenting them a brief and synthetic piece of information, 94.6% showed an interest in additional information and 53.5% felt ready to suggest it to their patients. We can underline that 51.3% are in favor of popularizing TTC, so that it could be suggested to patients the same way female contraceptives are. Conclusion: Male contraception is a topic that motivates a number of national and international clinical trials. Although still in the experimental stage, the results are promising. In response to the increasing demand of patient, General Practitioners would be willing to support TTC projects, provided that additional information and solid scientific evidence are available.
