    Abstract [en]

    Background: The sexual health might be negatively affected by breast cancer treatments and cause suffering for women. Medical treatments for breast cancer cause menopausal symptoms, fatigue and hair loss, while surgical treatments might affect women’s body image. Aim: To highlight women's experiences of how their sexual health has been affected by breast cancer treatments. Method: A literature review based on qualitative and quantitative research. Results: Three categories were identified in the result; reduced sexual activity, altered body image and the influence of relationships on the sexual health. The most common side effects that were experienced were reduced sexual desire and pain during sexual intercourse due to vaginal dryness. Loss of femininity as a result of mastectomy was a common experience among these women. It was found that a supportive and understanding partner is important to promote their sexual health. Conclusion: Women's sexual health is affected both mentally and physically by the breast cancer treatments, which should be observed by nurses in all health facilities. It is important that nurses are working from a patient centered approach and adjust information and support to individual requirements and needs to prevent sexual illness.
