Experienced quality of life in women with endometriosis (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund Endometrios är en kronisk gynekologisk sjukdom som drabbar cirka tio procent av kvinnor i fertil ålder. Trots detta faktum råder okunskap kring sjukdomen. Smärta i samband med menstruation normaliseras och att få diagnosen endometrios kan därför ta många år och förorsakar således lidande för kvinnorna. Syfte Att undersöka hur kvinnor som diagnostiserats med endometrios upplever att sjukdomen påverkar deras livskvalitet. Metod En allmän litteraturöversikt med kvalitativ ansats baserad på tio vetenskapliga artiklar publicerade mellan 2004–2016. Resultat Kvinnor beskriver upplevelser av att samtliga dimensioner av livskvalitet påverkas av diagnosen endometrios. Fyra teman konkretiserar detta: Sjukdomens påverkan i vardagen, Sjukdomens påverkan på arbete och utbildning, Sjukdomens påverkan på parrelationer och fertilitet samt Misstro och brist på stöd inom hälso- och sjukvården. Slutsats Vårdpersonal har en viktig roll i att stötta patienter med endometrios och ge dem förutsättningar samt resurser att ta kontroll över sin sjukdom för att öka den upplevda livskvaliteten. Implikationer Fortsatt forskning kring endometrios, både ur ett medicinskt- såväl som ur ett omvårdnadsperspektiv rekommenderas.

Abstract [en]

Background Endometriosis is a chronic gynaecological disease that affects approximately ten percent of women of childbearing age. Despite this fact, there continues to be a lack of knowledge regarding the disease. Pain in connection to menstruation is normalized, thus the diagnosis of endometriosis can take many years and cause suffering for women. Aim The aim was to investigate how women diagnosed with endometriosis experience that the disease affects their quality of life (QoL). Method A general literature review was conducted based on ten qualitative studies published between 2004-2016. Result Women experience that all dimensions of quality of life are affected by endometriosis. Four themes illustrate how women experienced how the disease affected their QoL: The disease's impact on everyday life, The disease's impact on work and education, The disease's influence on relationships and fertility and Distrust and lack of support in health care. Conclusion Healthcare professionals play a significant role in supporting endometriosis patients and give them the qualifications and resources to take control of their illness in order to increase their perceived quality of life. Implications Continued research on endometriosis, both from a medical and from a nursing perspective, is recommended.
