Summary

Contraception among women in France has evolved considerably and has become a frequent reason for consultation in general practice in view of the growing shortage of gynaecologists practising in towns.

Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are the leading reversible contraceptive method used in the world, but only 20.7% of women in France were using them in 2010.

In practice, in France, use of the IUD is still "reserved" for older women or those who have already had children, despite medical recommendations.

In this study the investigator will investigate whether clear information about the mode of action and insertion/withdrawal of IUDs would dispel these misconceptions of patients.

Description

Contraception among women in France has evolved considerably and has become a frequent reason for consultation in general practice in view of the growing shortage of gynaecologists practising in towns.

Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are the leading reversible contraceptive method used in the world, but only 20.7% of women in France were using them in 2010.

In practice in France, the use of IUDs is still "reserved" for older women or those who have already had children, despite medical recommendations. Indeed, there is a certain feeling of mistrust towards the IUD as a contraceptive method. Sometimes the patient's reasons for refusal were unclear or misconceptions and prejudices prevailed.

Various research studies and theses have identified the various obstacles to the use of the IUD as a contraceptive. Today it would be interesting to evaluate whether a short presentation of the IUD during a consultation would lead to a better acceptance of women to use it as a possible contraceptive method.

In this study the investigators will investigate whether clear information about the mode of action and insertion/removal of IUDs would dispel these misconceptions of patients.
