Résumé

La non-observance du suivi postavortement est associée à une mauvaise observance contraceptive. L’objectif de cette étude est de déterminer les facteurs associés à la non-observance du suivi précoce postavortement chez 1 661 femmes ayant obtenu une interruption volontaire de grossesse à la Clinique de Planification des Naissances du Centre Hospitalier de l’Université Laval. En analyse multivariée, les facteurs indépendamment associés au non-retour à la visite de suivi sont le jeune âge, l’usage du tabac, une histoire d’avortements provoqués antérieurs, l’usage de contraceptifs oraux lors de la conception, le fait d’avoir eu un seul partenaire sexuel dans l’année précédente ainsi qu’une durée de gestation avancée lors de l’intervention. Le dépistage de ces femmes permettrait peut-être d’améliorer l’observance du suivi post-avortement ainsi que l’observance contraceptive, et contribuer ainsi à prévenir les avortements à répétition.

Abstract

Non-compliance to follow-up after an induced abortion is associated with poor compliance to contraception. This study was undertaken to determine which factors are associated with follow-up visit compliance after an induced abortion among 1,661 women who had the operation at the Clinique de Planification des Naissances du Centre Hospitalier de l’Université Laval. Factors associated with non-compliance to follow-up include young age, smoking, previous induced abortion, a single sexual partner during the previous year, the use of oral contraceptives and advanced gestational age at the time of the procedure. Careful screening of these women might improve compliance with follow-up visits and contraception, which could in turn help to prevent repeat abortions.
