    Menstruation during a lifespan: A qualitative study of women's experiences2014In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 35, no 6, p. 600-616Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Menstruation is a natural phenomenon for women during their reproductive years. Our aim was to describe womens experiences of menstruation across the lifespan. Qualitative interviews with a narrative approach were conducted with 12 women between 18 and 48 years of age in Sweden. Using thematic analysis, we found menstruation to be a complex phenomenon that binds women together. It is perceived as an intimate and private matter, which makes women want to conceal the occurrence of menstrual bleeding. Over time, menstruation becomes a natural part of womens lives and gender identity. Health professionals play a central role supporting women to deal with menstruation.

    Following the thread of Ariadne to the health of women1996In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 201-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The health of women has risen to a priority position in medical research. Comparative studies of female morbidity are called for as an intermediary stage for generation of hypotheses and design of deeper studies of determinants, such as social, ecological, and individual factors. In previous studies, we have noted differences in female hospitalization between Heraklion in Greece and Linköping in Sweden. They were related to age and to urban versus rural dwelling, and fit projections for a more archaic and a more technocratic society, respectively. This paper aims at showing how the study of women's health may proceed from relevant hospitalization observations to the next level, of exploring already available indicators of self‐perceived health in elderly females.

    Getting no respect: Barriers to mammography for a group of Swedish women2003In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 24, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mammography screening is a highly sensitive and specific method to detect breast cancer at an early stage. If screening campaigns are to be cost effective, compliance is valuable. However, many women do not attend when called for mammography screening. Our aim in this study is to understand and explain why women become nonattenders. A sample of 16 nonattending women, aged between 43 and 73 years, participated in this qualitative study, by interviews or written comments. The core category discovered in the data was "getting no respect." The informants did not feel respected from either the society or the health care system. Below this core category, two categories were identified: the mammography examination and affecting circumstances. The performance and its effects comprised the content of the category of mammography examination. The category affecting circumstances included knowledge about risk factors, prevention, and practical or emotional arguments.

    Fundamental and situational components in a strategy for attaining a positive patient experience of the pelvic examination: a conceptual approach1991In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 12, no 4, p. 415-429Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since 1983, researchers in medicine, behavior, and health care have been involved in collaborative work concerning attitudes toward the pelvic examination (PE). Important components of the analysis are social actions and conduct, which are conceptualized from role theory. The outcome of the PE is determined by both fundamental and situational components. The purpose is to discover optimal environmental conditions under which the PE should be performed. The medical profession has a long history, primarily established within hospitals. Professional performance has been directed toward diagnosis and cure; consequently, a particularistic view dominates. Throughout history the midwifery profession has had the primary task of supporting the woman in confinement. The dominant view of the midwifery profession is universalistic. The strategy we present is an approach for conceptualizing the bases determining the PE situation. It is a distinct step toward finding gynecological practices that may create positive patient experience of the PE.

    Clinical Profiles of Premenstrual Experiences Among Women Having Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS): Affective Changes Predominate and Relate to Social and Occupational Functioning2015In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 36, no 10, p. 1104-1123Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our objective for this study was to examine symptom severity among women suffering from premenstrual syndrome as well as associations between symptom severity and impairment. In a one-cycle prospective study, various premenstrual symptoms of 91 women were assessed. Tension and irritability were the most severe symptoms. Headache, irritability, self-deprecating thoughts, and depressed mood were the symptoms that were subjectively rated as the most burdensome. Significant correlations were found between the mean premenstrual severity and functional impairment. The severity of premenstrual affective symptoms was related to social impairment. The severity of psychological symptoms was correlated with occupational impairment. These findings confirm the prominent role of premenstrual affective symptoms and support classification guidelines focusing on both affective and physical changes.
