Abstract [en]

Using a life-world hermeneutic approach, this study focused on the interviews with eight Swedish men living with genital warts. The men expressed a need for control over their situation, a control that was easier to maintain if the warts were invisible. Some of the men expressed prejudiced attitudes toward those who contract a venereal infection and their own feelings of shame appeared to correlate with these prejudices. In their meetings with health care providers, the men viewed a competent health care provider as someone who combined professional distance with a personal approach. Finally, the fact that men saw themselves as disease carriers was of great significance to them and influenced their views of future meaningful relationships.
