Womens’ experiences of sexuality after a gynecological cancer treatment : a literature review (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Gynecological cancer is the second most common form of cancer in women. There are different treatment options, including surgery and radiotherapy. As a result of effective treatments the number of women who survived in recent years has increased. Complications resulting from the different treatments are common and may affect womens’ sexuality. Since problems with sexuality can arise related to various diseases and treatments the nurse will also come into contact with sexuality issues in meeting with patients.

Aim: To highlight women´s experiences of sexuality after a gynocological cancer treatment.

Method: A literature review based on eleven scientific articles. Data collection was conducted on the databases CINAHL Complete, PubMed and Nursing & Allied Health database. The articles were reviewed and similarities identified.

Results: Three main themes were identified, physical impact, mental impact and partner relationships. It was found that women in many cases experienced a negative change in their sexuality and that the self-image was negatively affected by the cancer and subsequent treatment. The result also showed that it was common among women to feel that they had not received enough information about complications that might arise after cancer treatment.

Discussion: The result is discussed based on Roys adaption model and the various adaptive functional areas that the model contains and based on scientific articles.
