Abstract
On en parle ! Il est question de la suppression des règles par l'administration de contraceptifs oestro-progestatifs (pilule, patch ou anneau vaginal) en cycles longs (cycles prolongés ; cycles étendus ; extended cycles) entraînant des périodes d'aménorrhée, rythmées par des intervalles libres de sept jours sans administration hormonale. L'indication à ce mode de prescription est presque unanimement reconnue pour le traitement des pathologies bénéficiant de la suppression des règles et des fluctuations hormonales inhérentes à l'activité ovarienne. Ce traitement suscite cependant également de l'intérêt pour une indication du type mode de vie. Les modalités thérapeutiques, les avantages et inconvénients sont examinés à la lumière de l'attente des femmes et de leur droit au choix éclairé et libre.
Let's talk about it ! Suppression of menstruation, by extending the duration of contraceptives containing estro-progestins (oral contraception, patch or vaginal ring) to long cycles, is a new approach in the field of contraception. These extended cycles aim at obtaining prolonged amenorrhea, interrupted periodically by a free interval of 7 days without hormone intake and thus causing breakthrough bleeding. Pathologies, which are supposed to get some benefit from the suppression of menstruation and of hormone level variations related to ovarian activity, are widely recognized as an indication. Some interest is also coming up for so called life style indications. Treatment issues, advantages and disadvantages are examined in the light of women's expectations and right to access to informed consent and independent choice.
