Abstract [sv]

Introduktion. Endometrios är en inflammatorisk, kronisk östrogenberoende sjukdom i endometriet. Symtom kan vara smärta, dysparenui, infertilitet och minskad prestationsförmåga på grund av tröttheten. Det är svårt att ställa diagnos då endometrios kan vara svårupptäckt på grund av ospecifika symtomen. Syfte. Att undersöka hur kvinnor med endometrios påverkas av sin sjukdom. Metod. I denna studie användes litteraturöversikt som metod. Fjorton originalartiklar, både kvalitativa och kvantitativa, publicerade i vetenskapliga tidskrifter har studerats. Resultat. Endometrios påverkar kvinnors vardagliga liv negativt, på ett socialt, psykiskt och fysiskt plan. Ett av de stora problemen kvinnorna har är smärta, som kommer till följd av sjukdomen. Smärtan påverkar många aspekter negativt så som arbetet, vardagslivet och det sociala livet. De upplever att sjukdomen inte tas på allvar av omgivningen och sjukvårdspersonal har bristande kunskap och förståelse. Diskussion. Bristen på kunskap om sjukdomen bland sjukvårdspersonal bidrar till att kvinnor inte blir sedda och rätt behandlade. Att kvinnor negligeras kan leda till social isolering och psykisk ohälsa. Slutsats. En ökad kunskap och förståelse hos sjukvårdspersonal skulle bidra till bättre omvårdnad, behandling och omhändertagande av kvinnorna, vilket kan öka deras välbefinnande. Mer forskning behövs om sjukdomens etiologi och omvårdnad.

Abstract [en]

Introduction. Endometriosis is an inflammatory, chronic estrogen dependent disorder of the endometrium. Symptoms can include pain, dyspareunia, infertility and decreased performance due to fatigue. It’s difficult to diagnose as endometriosis can be difficult to detect because of nonspecific symptoms. Purpose. To investigate how women with endometriosis are affected by their disease. Method. In this study a literature review were used as method. Fourteen original articles published in scientific journals were studied. Results. Endometriosis affects women's daily lives negatively, socially, psychologically and physically. One of the major problem women had were pain, which comes as a result of the disease. The pain affects work, family life and social life negatively. They felt that the illness wasn’t taken seriously by the environment and health care professionals had a lack of knowledge and understanding. Discussion. The lack of knowledge about the disease among health care professionals does not contribute to let women be seen and treated correctly. That women are neglected can lead to social isolation and mental illness. Conclusion. Increased knowledge and understanding among the medical staff would contribute to better treatment, care and well-being among the women. More research is needed on the disease etiology.
