Gynecology and politics

The World as it will have already mentioned

 [ 1 ] the problem of the gradual disappearance of the medical gynecology , French specialty that provided us the best most effective surveillance and prevention in developed countries. Today, on the eve of the presidential election, the GMPCC

 [ 2 ] for candidates a letter-memorandum.

It should be remembered that medical gynecology was abolished purely and simply from the university curriculum in 1987. Ten years later, the CDGM was founded in the face of the real danger that this disappearance caused to the health of women . A petition with more than 3 million signatures and 3 national events resulted in the creation of a diploma, re-establishing this specialty, which enables French women to be among the best treated in the world: the number Of cancer of the uterus has been divided by four in 20 years, survival after breast cancer is one of the best in Europe and the rate of hysterectomy is 6.7% While it is between 35% to 45% in our neighbors! These results are, no doubt, coaching women, the visit to the gynecologist for contraceptive prescription is always the chance of a general control, clinical breast examination, Pap … etc. This is the time when women Confide and share what hurts them or makes them suffer. The relationship between a gynecologist and her patients is a very special thing that passes years, babies, small infections and worries and nothing can replace these privileged appointments. Palpation of the breasts, smears … etc. This is the time when women confide and share what bothers them or makes them suffer.

Why worry if the training has been re-established? Because after 17 years of complete cessation , Fairfax OBGYN only forms between twenty and thirty gynécos per year for all the territory and the National Council of the Order of the Doctors reports that there are less than 7,6 gynecos Per 100,000 women! These enrollments allow only one-quarter of women of access age to have access to a specialist. Against 60% in 1997. Result? Waiting times continue to grow, up to 6 months and even a year, and girls will probably no longer have gynecologists unless their mothers “boost” them with theirs. There is no need to recall the risks of delayed diagnosis!

Roselyne Bachelot, who may have been better inspired, advocates the “transfer of tasks to other health professionals” is a real regression. One would go to see midwives , general practitioners and pharmacists , as in the past. Whatever the qualities of each one, who can say that the education and the prevention in contraception with the girls will be as well done by the pharmacists  ? Are they not likely to be judge and party and is a pharmacy the best place to confide? Is a midwife trained to diagnose early pathologies other than pregnancy? And will women speak freely with their generalist?

These are all questions that GMPCC posed to the candidates, issues may be more crucial that the revision of the driving license. It is a whole policy of prevention and excellence that would be sacked with indifference if women did not react, because, let us not deceive ourselves, if women feel less surrounded and less supported, Will continue to be the champions of fertility that other Western countries envy us!
