Clinical Trial Summary

An terminated pregnancy is defined as the cessation of cardiac activity before 14 weeks of amenorrhea. This early interruption of gestation can be induced by pathological, traumatic or idiopathic causes. In any case, it remains a physically and psychologically trying event for the woman, the couple as well as for the man. Indeed, the loss of this embryo, which measures only a few millimeters, corresponds to the loss of a child for the triad: woman, man, couple. The termination of this pregnancy is experienced as a bereavement for the future parents. The stopped pregnancy has always been a taboo in the society. The proof being that it was not until the 1980s that this was considered mourning and its psychological consequences were studied. Following these studies, psychological follow-ups are democratized and are thus offered to women. However, when is it men? The investigators have always put the woman at the center of the care process. Which is legitimate. However, the man is often seen as "the person who influences the woman". This default categorization marginalizes the man who would like to be an actor in the care of his partner. In fact, men are increasingly asking to support women in their gynecological care procedures. Unfortunately, for lack of measures put in place. The men are more than abandoned.
