Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVES: Women living with HIV have specific needs regarding sexuality, pregnancy, and childbirth. However, there is lack of knowledge about how these needs can be met. The aim of this study was to identify supportive conditions for sexual and perinatal wellbeing in women living with HIV in Sweden.

METHODS: A phenomenological reflective lifeworld research approach was used. Transcribed interviews with 18 women living with HIV in Sweden were analyzed focusing on the meanings of the study phenomenon.

RESULTS: When living with HIV, "feeling safe with oneself and in relationships with others" is essential for sexual and perinatal wellbeing. This is constituted by having good overall health, being in a caring context, having access to high quality information about HIV, and being ensured the same rights as other women.

CONCLUSIONS: The study shows that women living with HIV have specific needs for the support of their sexual and perinatal wellbeing. This knowledge can be used by all those engaged in HIV care and HIV prevention in order to improve and implement supportive conditions for women living with HIV. It is important that all those involved in the care of women living with HIV constantly update their knowledge about HIV and women's experiences of living with HIV in order to provide safe arenas and caring contexts that support the wellbeing of these women.
