Upper secondary school youths knowledge and understanding about Chlamydia trachomatis (English)
Abstract [sv]

Ungdomar genomgår en mognadsprocess innehållande ett flertal viktiga faktorer i dagens samhälle. Utvecklingen består av att bli självständig, forma personligheten, hantera känslor samt hantera sexualitet. I detta ingår att skydda sig mot den sexuellt överförbara infektionen Chlamydia trachomatis (CT). Syftet med studien var att beskriva gymnasieungdomars uppfattning om infektionen. Hur är kunskapen i ämnet? På vilket sätt tror de att ungdomar skyddar sig? Hur ser de på kärlek och sexualitet? Författarna har valt en kvalitativ ansats med fokusgrupps intervjuer och analyserat resultatet enligt innehållsanalys. Fyra intervjuer har utförts där två flickgrupper respektive två pojkgrupper medverkat. Fyra teman förekommer i resultatet; Uppfattning och kunskap kring att drabbas av CT, uppfattning om sex och kärlek, attityder till skydd samt sexualundervisning. Resultatet visar likheter och skillnader hos flickor och pojkar i författarnas intervjuer. Kunskap om CT varierar, men att konsekvensen av en obehandlad CT kan leda till infertilitet hade samtliga ungdomar kunskap om. Även psykologiska aspekter framkommer. Resultatet speglar skillnader gällande sex och kärlek. Det första samlaget är en ”milstolpe” enligt pojkarna medan flickor anser att det hör ihop. Skydd förknippas med ”lathet” och skydd mot oönskad graviditet, inte skydd mot CT.

Abstract [en]

 

Youths are going through a growing process involving many different factors.  The development consists of becoming independent, shape personality, handle feelings and sexuality.  This includes protecting yourself against the sexually transmitted disease, Chlamydia trachomatis (CT). The purpose of this study was to describe upper secondary school youths knowledge and understanding of the infection. How is the knowledge in the subject? In what way do they think youths protect themselves? What are their views about love and sexuality? The authors have chosen a qualitative approach with interviews in focus groups. The data was analyzed with content analyse. Four interviews have been done, where two groups of girls and two groups of boys participated. Four themes exist in the results; knowledge and understanding of CT, understanding of sex and love, attitudes towards protection and sexual education. The result shows similarities and differences between boys and girls in the interviews. The knowledge about CT fluctuates, but the knowledge about that a not treated CT can give rise to infertility did the group knowledge about. Even psychological aspects appear. The result reflects differences about sex and love. The first intercourse is a "milestone" according to the boys whereas the girls have the opinion that it belongs together. Protection is put together with "laziness" and unplanned pregnancy, not protection against CT.
