Title: The relationship to the body and health
in the contraceptive choices of young women in
France according to social background
This post-doctoral project focuses on the
relationship to their bodies and their health
of young women (between 20 and 30 years old)
using a contraceptive method. Going beyond the
paradigm of contraceptive efficacy, it is a
question of seeing how taking into account the
different effects of contraceptive methods,
medical or not, on the body, health or even the
relationship with oneself can allow a better
understanding of their use by young women in
different social circles and the evolution that
it is currently undergoing, in connection with
the renewal in this generation of the
relationship to the body and health and with a
demand for more " natural "or, in any case,
less" hormonal ". It includes a quantitative
component (analysis of INED / Inserm surveys as
well as data collected online) and a
qualitative component (20 interviews with young
women from different social backgrounds).
