    Abstract

    In France in 2010, 50% of women aged 15-49 concerned by contraception used the pill. The slight fall in the proportion of pill users since the early 2000s has been offset by the growing use of new hormonal contraception methods (contraceptive implant, patch and vaginal ring), except among the 20-24 age group. Use of the IUD is continuing its slow decline, while condom use is increasing. Only a small minority of women opt for contraceptive sterilization, which was legalized in 2001. Around 3% of women not wishing to become pregnant do not use any form of contraception. This situation is more frequent among women facing financial difficulties, with a low level of education or living in a rural area.
