Contraception is a term that refers to all the processes used to cause temporary infertility in women and also in humans. To be more clear, contraceptive methods are designed to prevent ovulation or the woman using pills or fertilization itself using condoms and also using the IUD. In France, the use of contraceptive methods is quite widespread yet unwanted pregnancies are still very numerous. This means that there is a flaw somewhere.

Unplanned pregnancies are still many

In fact now, even with the popularized use of contraceptive methods, unplanned pregnancies are still very numerous. Approximately 1/3 of unwanted pregnancies in France are due to non-use of contraceptives and the rest is to say 2/3 occur even using condoms, pills or IUDs also. According to Health Minister Marisol Touraine, there is a contraceptive standard for the results to be satisfactory. She made it clear during the campaign that it launched to be effective contraception must be adapted to the individual situation of each. She noted that: “There is no standard or turnkey solution, but a necessary adaptation to lifestyles, to the age and medical history. ”

Decline in the sale of birth control pills

Since late 2012, that is to say after the first complaint of a young woman who has suffered a stroke, marketing pills 3rd and 4th generation decreased. In figures, this decrease selling pills is 25%. We must not also forget that health authorities had started at the same time to inform users about the thrombotic risks that could be caused by these contraceptives and their desisting by social security. For mutual complementary health reimbursement of these drugs are also zero. For more information about this, we invite you to take a little detour on mutual online.

All pills are concerned

Currently, sales of pills all generations experienced a decline of 3.5%. This means that about 150,000 women have abandoned any form of oral contraception. Dominique Maraninchi, Director General of the National Security Agency of the drug (MSNA) said: “Following our recommendations, doctors’ prescriptions have evolved rapidly, which reduces the risk exposure” Selling the Diane 35 which was once widely used has been suspended there were a few weeks. Its sales fell 50% in 20 days.

And for women who can not bear the pills?

Certainly, we must know that there are some women who do not support non-oral or other intrauterine contraceptive methods, what will become of them since as mentioned earlier by Touraine, contraceptives should adapt to lifestyles, the ages and also medical history to be effective. Fortunately ANSM account set up in June of measures to ensure that the pills 3rd and 4th generation may be prescribed to women who do not support other contraceptive methods. In this case, the physician should inform the patient about the risks of the past. At the same time, an additional warning should accompany the package leaflet.

Until when?

According to experts, these new habits of French on contraceptive methods can last … or not. Dr. Brigitte Letombe gynecologist in Lille has stated that: “The choice of a contraceptive method is far from clear and backlash is always possible. Nothing says that women today are asking us IUD still support in a few months. Contrary to popular belief, the IUD can be used by young women who have not had children, and those who already have. The most important thing is not to have a uterine malformation. The duration of action of an IUD is 4 to 10 years. Some women said that their rules were a little painful and heavy when they had used this method of contraception intrauterine copper. For others, no change was observed and the results are satisfactory. Dominique Maraninchi, the Director General of the MSNA, says the results are very encouraging as sales IUDs have increased in all age groups. In addition, they are reimbursed by the mutual complementary health.
