No one told me, this treatment probably might take my fertility away : A literature review about information during cancer treatment (English)
Abstract [sv]

BAKGRUND: Det råder oklarhet i vilken utsträckning patienter drabbade av cancer får information om cancerbehandlingens potentiella inverkan på fertiliteten och fertilitetsbevarande åtgärder. SYFTE: Att beskriva erfarenheter av information avseende fertilitet och fertilitetsbevarande åtgärder inför cancerbehandling hos patienter drabbade av cancer i fertil ålder. METOD: Litteraturöversikt av kvalitativ och kvantitativ forskning. RESULTAT: Sju teman identifierades: (1) Information till kvinnor om behandlingens potentiella inverkan på fertiliteten. (2) Rådgivning om fertilitetsbevarande åtgärder. (3) Brist på empowerment som en konsekvens av otillräcklig information. (4) Varför fick jag ingen information och varför erbjöds inte fertilitetsbevarande åtgärder? (5) Informationen varierar kopplat till kön, ålder och sexuell läggning. (6) Förlust av fertilitet kan ge nedsatt livskvalitet och påverka kvinnans syn på sin identitet. (7) Patienterna vill ha mer information och stöd. SLUTSATS: Patienter drabbade av cancer i fertil ålder får inte tillräckligt med information om cancerbehandlingens potentiella risker för fertiliteten. Kvinnor får mindre information än män och löper större risk att äventyra sin fertilitet. Vårdpersonalen behöver vara lyhörda för patientens behov och bör delge patienten adekvat information för att möjliggöra empowerment och öka livskvalité hos dessa patienter.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: There is uncertainty as to what extent patients with cancer receive information about cancer treatment's potential effects on fertility and fertility preservation. PURPOSE: To describe the experience about information regarding fertility and fertility preservation prior to cancer treatment in patients with cancer of reproductive age. METHODS: Literature review of qualitative and quantitative research. RESULTS: Seven themes were identified: (1) Information to women about the treatment's potential effects on fertility. (2) Counseling in infertility preservation. (3) Lack of empowerment as a consequence of insufficient information. (4) Why didn’t I receive any information and whywasn’t I offered fertility preservation? (5) Information varies related to sex, age and sexual orientation. (6) Loss of fertility may impair quality of life and affect a woman's view of her identity. (7) Patients want more information and support. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with cancer in reproductive age, may not be enough informed about the cancer treatment´s potential risks on fertility. Women receive less information than men and are more likely to jeopardize their fertility. Health professionals need to be sensitive to the patient's needs and should inform the patient with adequate information to enable empowerment and to increasing the quality of life in these patients.
