Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to describe the lives of women who are living with vestibulitis. 13% of women aged 20-29 suffer from vestibulitis and studies show that vestibulitis increase. A narrative analysis with qualitative approach was used. This is done by reviewing a number of blogs written by women who are suffering from this disease. A selection of seven different blogs that matched the studies criteria’s where chosen for review. One advantage by reviewing written text in a narrative form is that they often describe the situation very accurately and in great detail. The analysis of these texts where done jointly by the authors which strengthens the reliability of the results.

 

This study shows that women handle their pain and suffering differently. The major difference in outcome however, lies in what kind of support and healthcare they receive. And the results differ from handling their disease and life situation quite well, to having issues finding comfort and even meaning with life. Women who are suffering from vestibulitis express feelings of loneliness, depression and hopelessness. Low self-esteem, physical and mental exhaustion and relationship issues are also common among women suffering from vestibulitis.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva kvinnors upplevelse av hur det är att leva med vestibulit. 13 % av kvinnor mellan 20-29 år drabbas av vestibulit och studier visar att vestibulit öka. En narrativ analys med kvalitativ ansats användes. Detta gjordes genom att analysera ett antal utvalda bloggar, skrivna av kvinnor som lever med vestibulit. Ett urval av sju olika bloggar som uppfyllde kraven valdes ut för granskning. En fördel av att granska texter skrivna i berättande form är att de ofta beskriver situationen väldigt väl och med hög detaljrikedom. Analysen av dessa bloggar genomfördes gemensamt av båda författarna vilket stärker träffsäkerheten av resultatet.

 

Studien visar att kvinnorna hanterar sin smärta och sitt lidande olika. Den stora skillnaden i hur bra de kan hantera sin sjukdom, ligger i vilket stöd, bemötande och vilka vårdinsatser de ges. Och resultatet varierar från att kunna leva ett relativt bra liv med sin sjukdom, till att ha svårigheter att hitta tröst eller även meningen med livet. Kvinnor som lider av vestibulit uttrycker en känsla av ensamhet, depression och hopplöshet. Men även låg självkänsla, fysisk och mental utmattning och relationsproblem är vanligt bland kvinnor som lider av vestibulit.
