Abstract [en]

Up to 16% of all women suffer from provoked vulvodynia (PVD), previously called vulvar vestibulitis syndrome, which causes vaginal pain and affects women physically, psychologically, and reproductively. The causes of the disease are still unknown. In earlier research it has been shown connections between the disease and psychosocial factors, but it has not been possible to confirm if PVD is caused by the psychosocial factors. Currently, there is no recommended standard treatment of PVD and several methods are applied. In most cases some symptoms remain after the treatment. One treatment is the BSÖ-method (processing conversation with eye movements). The method is based on Shapiro’s EMDR method, where eye movements which resemble the eye movements in REM sleep are elicited when processing traumatic memories during conversation. The aim of this thesis is to investigate if the BSÖ-method is an effective treatment of PVD and if the causes for the disease can be identified. A survey was administered to 21 clients before and after treatment with the BSÖ-method. The two district nurses, who provide the treatment where interviewed. The results indicate alleviation of symptoms and improvement of general health.
