Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Sexualitet hos äldre är precis som hos yngre en viktig del av livskvaliteten. Den sexuella förmågan och de sexuella behoven fortsätter långt upp i åren. Ett aktivt sexualliv har visat sig vara bra för välbefinnandet.

Syfte: Syftet var att undersöka vilka faktorer som har en positiv påverkan på äldre kvinnors sexuella välbefinnande.

Metod: En kvantitativ metod har används på ett redan insamlat datamaterial. Detta material består av omfattande enkäter som samlades in under åren 2000-2003. Huvudvariabel sexuellt välbefinnande har testats mot flera relevanta variabler. Analysmetoderna som användes var Chi-square test, univariat analys och slutligen en multivariat analys. Vi har valt att titta på den positiva odds kvoten, det vill säga vad som påverkar det sexuella välbefinnandet positivt.

Resultat: Av den undersökta populationen skattade 25 % av kvinnorna att de hade ett bra sexuellt välbefinnande. Studien visade ett starkt samband mellan att känna sig uppskattad i hemmet och att vara nöjd med sitt sexuella välbefinnande. Att vara nöjd med sin kropp var en positiv faktor för det sexuella välbefinnandet. Signifikans fanns också för att ha ett bra humör, att vara icke rökare och att inte ha passerat menopaus.
