To live with endometriosis: A literature review. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Titel: Att leva med endometrios: En litteraturstudie. Bakgrund: Endometrios är en vanlig gynekologisk sjukdom som drabbar var tionde kvinna i fertil ålder och i Sverige drabbar nästa 250 000 kvinnor. Trots detta är vägen till diagnos lång och kvinnorna upplever en rad problem i sin vardag. Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva kvinnors erfarenheter av att leva med endometrios. Metod: Åtta kvalitativa studier har granskats, analyserats och sammanställts i en litteraturstudie. Sökningar efter relevanta studier gjordes i Cinahl, Pubmed, Medline, PsycINFO, google scholar och manuell sökning. Resultat: Analysen resulterade i tre kategorier “ Att bli misstrodd av vården och anhöriga och därav normalisera sina symtom”, “Att försöka bemästra sjukdomen och känslan av en osäker framtid” och “Endometrios symtomen ger begränsningar i det vardagliga livet”. Konklusion: Resultatet visar att kvinnor upplever att de inte blir tagna på allvar när de söker vård, att de hittar egna sätt att hantera sjukdomen på och att de upplever problem av symtomen i sin vardag. Sjuksköterskan kan med personcentrerad vård möjligen hjälpa dessa kvinnor att hantera sin vardag bättre, men mer forskning krävs. Nyckelord 3–5 st.: endometrios, upplevelse, symtom, litteraturstudie

Despite this the path to diagnosis is long women experience several different problems in their daily life.Aim: The aim of the study was to describe women’s experiences of living with endometriosisMethods: Eight qualitative articles were examined, analyzed and compiled in a literature review. Searches for relevant studies were done in Pubmed, Medline,PsycINFO, google scholar and manual search.Results: The analysis resulted in three categories “To be misunderstood by the care and relatives and hence normalized their symptoms”, “To try to master the disease and the feeling of an uncertain future” and “endometriosis symptoms give limitations to everyday life”Conclusions: The result shows that women experience that they are not taken seriously when they seek medical help, that they find their own way to manage the disease and that they experience problem of the symptoms in their daily lives. The nurse may with personal-centered care possibly help these women to manage their daily lives better but more research is required.
