Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva unga kvinnors upplevelser av förtidig menopausefter cytostatika- och/eller hormonbehandling. Ett ytterligare syfte var att beskriva hursexualiteten upplevdes efter dessa behandlingar. Undersökningen genomfördes i två etapper med fenomenologisk metod. Öppna individuella intervjuer valdes i delstudie 1. I delstudie 2 användes fokusgrupp. Sammanlagt deltog nio kvinnor i studien. Dessa kvinnor var yngre än 45 år vid diagnosen och hade slutat att menstruera pga. behandling. Essensen befanns vara: Att inte känna igen sig själv, med delkomponenterna den fertila sexuella kroppen, den åldrande kroppen, sårbarhet och bekräftelse. I fokugruppsintervjun utvecklades essensen: Utanförskap med delkomponenterna att inte vara hemma i sin egen ålder, stigma, sexuell lust och intima relationer, existentiell oro samtbekräftelse. Slutsatsen som dras är att man inom sjukvården bör utveckla samtalsformer som riktar uppmärksamhet mot dessa kvinnors upplevelser av identitetsförvirring och utanförskap. Vissa data tydde på att kunskap omsexualitet samt kroppskännedom mildrade de upplevda svårigheterna.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to describe young women’s experiences of premature menopause after chemotherapy and/or treatment of hormones. A further purpose was to describe the women’s experiences of sexuality due to these treatments. The study was conducted in two steps with phenomenological method. Unstructured individual interviews were chosen in part 1. In part 2 focus group interviews were used. Nine women in all participated in the study. These women were younger than 45 years at time of diagnoses and had stopped menstruate due to treatment. The essence that emerged: Not recognizing oneself consisting of the following components: the fertile body, the aging body, vulnerability and confirmation. In the focus group the essence turned out to be: feeling marginalized consisting of the following components: not being at home in your own age, stigma, desire and intimate relationships, existential anxiety and confirmation. The conclusion was that health care services should provide room for the women to discuss feelings of identity confusion and marginalization. Some data indicated that beeing knowledgable about sexuality and the functioning of one’s own body helped in coping with the difficulties caused by drug-induced menopaus
