Abstract [en]

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to explore the experiences of self-treatment for anogenital warts from the perspective of a group of young women who received it.

Study design: Ten young Swedish women were interviewed in the study, aged between16 and 21. The young women had been diagnosed with anogenital warts and self-managed their treatment with 0.5% podophyllotoxin solution.

Results: Self-management using 0.5% podophyllotoxin solution poses numerous difficulties. The nature of the treatment as a topical liquid is particularly testing for young women in terms of both application and genital pain, with implications for continuation of the treatment regime. The self-treatment challenges both personal integrity as well as interpersonal relations and creates a personal responsibility which appears to be somewhat overwhelming at times.

Conclusions: Health care professionals need to recognize the challenge that self-treatment poses to their clients. The issues that create difficulty in relation to topical liquid treatment regimes and importantly can lead to poor adherence to the treatment regime and discontinuation could easily be overcome by the use of different preparations. Continuity of care provider across treatments and alternative mechanisms of support would not only address some of the aspects that young women raise as particularly embarrassing and shameful, but also improve quality of care and increase general satisfaction with service provision.
