Sexuality after gynaecological cancer : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Gynekologisk cancer är en samlingsterm för flera olika cancersjukdomar som

drabbar kvinnors könsorgan och reproduktiva system. Både sjukdom och behandling påverkar

kvinnornas sexualitet på flera plan, både fysiskt, psykiskt så väl som socialt. Kvinnornas

upplevelser kan kopplas till lidande i olika former. Lidande i den karitativa omvårdnadsteorin

av Katie Eriksson delas in i sjukdomslidande, livslidande och vårdlidande. Syfte: Syftet med

denna studie var att belysa upplevelser av sexualitet hos kvinnor som har genomgått

behandling för gynekologisk cancer. Metod: En allmän litteraturstudie baserat på tolv

kvalitativa studier genomfördes. Resultat: Resultatet i studien visar att kvinnor upplever

förändringar och svårigheter kopplat till sexualitet på flera olika sätt, även lång tid efter

avslutad behandling. Upplevelserna presenteras i fem teman där huvudfynden finns inom

tema Sexuell funktion och tema Sexuella relationer. Slutsats: Kunskap om dessa kvinnors

upplevelser och lidande kan öka möjligheterna för vårdpersonal att ge kvinnor god

omvårdnad som även syftar till att öka kvinnornas sexuella hälsa. Förslag på fortsatt

forskning: Fortsatt forskning inom området skulle kunna bidra till hur sjuksköterskestudenter

på bästa sätt kan lära sig hur samtal om sexualitet genomförs på ett sätt som är bekvämt för

både patient och sjuksköterska.

Abstract [en]

Background: Gynaecological cancer is a collective term that includes several different forms

of cancer. Both illness and treatment affect women's sexuality on multiple levels. This

includes physical, mental and social aspects. The experiences of these women also contain

suffering in various forms. Katie Eriksson describes this in the nursing theory Caritative

Caring as: suffering related to illness, suffering related to life and suffering caused by care.

Aim: The aim of this study was to highlight women's experiences of their sexuality after

undergoing treatment for gynaecological cancer. Method: A literature review based on

twelve qualitative studies was conducted. Results: The results shows that women experience

changes and difficulties linked to sexuality in several different ways, even long after the

treatment is completed. The experiences are presented in five themes where the main findings

are found in the themes Sexual Function and Sexual Relations. Conclusion: Knowledge of

these women's experiences and suffering can increase the ability of healthcare professionals to

provide good nursing care for women, which also aim at increasing women's sexual health.

Proposals for further research: Continuing research in this field could contribute to how

nurse students can best learn how conversations about sexuality are conducted in a convenient

way for both patient and nurse.
