Abstract [en]

Data regarding urinary, climacteric and sexual symptoms among women before and one year after treatment of endometrial (n = 30) and cervical cancer (n = 26) were selected by a questionnaire, survey of medical records and semistructured interviews. The results were compared with similar data from hysterectomized women (n = 30). Urinary and climacteric symptoms were frequent in all three groups of women one year after treatment. In the cancer group the occurrence of urinary incontinence was significantly more frequent among women with vaginal dryness than among those without. Sexual symptoms were common in the endometrial and cervical group but not in the hysterectomy group one year after treatment. The results from medical records were not always in accordance with the results from questionnaire. Finally, the prospective interview study proved an appropriate method for collecting relevant data concerning the women's sexual life.
