Abstract [en]

The primary purpose of this thesis is to improve one's understanding of how physically active women whom are currently in menopause experience this transition both psychologically and physically. Henceforth the study researches women's perceptions and thoughts on what can be improved in the Swedish health-care system to better women's experience of the menopause. This study will be done through a semi-constructed interview- and data collecting method, where six women are to be answering questions regarding their experiences of the menopause, their knowledge and lack of knowledge. How they perceive the Swedish health-care system and what their current physical activity level looks like. The results of the interviews indicate that all women interviewed experiences difficulties during the menopause, but neither one wants to aid the transition using medicine. Furthermore, the interviewed women argue that the health-care sector needs to take a greater responsibility in informing and helping women with their questions and offer a wider variety of treatment methods that does not infer risk. The conclusion of this thesis states that the health-care sector as well as gym facilities could be relevant arenas where guidance and information about the menopause time and what can be done to decrease effects of the menopause. This thesis correlate positively to previous research within this field, where the common theme is lack of openness and knowledge about the menopause period for both women as well as society in general.
