Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Endometrios är en av de vanligaste gynekologiska sjukdomarna som drabbar cirka tio procent av den kvinnliga befolkningen i fertil ålder. Sjukdomen är kronisk och associerad med ohälsa samt försämrad livskvalitet hos kvinnor. Hormonell behandling är idag en vanlig behandlingsmetod som även den kan ha en inverkan på kvinnors livskvalitet.

Syfte: Att undersöka kvinnors upplevda livskvalitet med hormonell behandling vid endometrios.

Metod: En litteraturstudie där 12 kvantitativa originalartiklar granskades och där resultatet sammanställdes och analyserades med en innehållsanalys.

Resultat: Majoriteten av de artiklar som ingick i litteraturstudien visade en förbättrad upplevd livskvalitet med hormonell behandling för kvinnor med endometrios. Den upplevda livskvaliteten förbättrades fysisk, psykisk, socialt och sexuellt oberoende av de biverkningar som redovisades. Endast två artiklar visade antingen försämrad eller oförändrad livskvalitet.

Slutsats: Endometrios leder till en minskad livskvalitet hos kvinnor som lider av sjukdomen och hormonell behandling kan förbättra livskvaliteten fysisk, psykisk, socialt och sexuellt hos dessa kvinnor oberoende av de biverkningar som förekom.

Abstract [en]

Background: Endometriosis is one of the most common gynecological diseases affecting approximately ten percent of the female population of reproductive age. It is a chronic disease associated with illness and impaired quality of life among women. A common method of treatment today is hormonal treatment which also has an impact in women's quality of life.

Aim: To examine perceived quality of life among women with endometriosis receiving hormonal treatment.

Method: A literature review where 12 original articles with quantitative method where reviewed and the results analysed with content analysis.

Results: The majority of the included articles showed an improved quality of life among women with endometriosis receiving hormonal treatment. Regardless of the side effects from the hormonal treatment the quality of life was improved in the physical, psychological, social and sexual areas. Only two articles showed either impaired or unchanged quality of life.

Conclusion: Endometriosis leads to impaired quality of life in women with the disease and hormonal treatment may improve the quality of life physical, psychological, social and sexual among these women regardless of the side effects that occurred.
