Respect my pronoun : Transgender people's experiences of healthcare support regarding their sexual health (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie var att undersöka hur transpersoner upplever stödet från sjukvården angående sin sexuella hälsa. Jag ville ta reda på om individerna blev erbjuden och/eller önskade stöd från sjukvården och hur det stödet skulle kunna se ut, samt hur det skulle kunna påverka den sexuella hälsan. Med hjälp av tio informanters skrivna narrativ som jag samlade in via en webbenkät beskrivs deras upplevelser. För att tolka och förstå informanternas berättelser tog jag hjälp av tidigare forskning på ämnet samt Judith Butlers teori om kön och genus och en queerfenomenologisk teori. Resultaten visade att ett hetero- och cis-normativt bemötande präglar vården på många håll samt att det finns en mycket stor okunskap kring denna målgrupp både inom vården men även inom tidigare forskning och det sociala arbetet. Det finns även en stor rädsla bland transpersonerna, en rädsla för hut de ska bli bemötta av vårdpersonal och som får konsekvenserna att de avstår från att söka vård vilket kan leda till en försämrad sexuell- och allmän hälsa.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine how transgender people are experiencing the support from healthcare regarding their sexual health. I wanted to find out if the individuals got offered and/or wished to get support from the healthcare, and what kind of support that could be and how other could affect their sexual health. With the help from ten informants written narratives that I collected via a web survey their experiences are described. I took help from previous research of the subject as well as Judith Butler's theory about sex and gender and a queerphenomenological theory to interpret and understand the informants stories. The results showed that a hetero- and cis-normative treatment characterizes the healthcare from many sides and there is also a lot of ignorance around this population, both in the healthcare, previous research and the practical social work. Among the transgender people there is a great fear, a fear of how they will be treated by the healthcare staff, this comes with the consequences that they refrain from seeking care which can lead to an impaired sexual- and general health.
