    Chilean Women's Reflections About Womanhood and Sexuality During Midlife in a Swedish or Chilean Context2009In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 30, no 12, p. 1093-1110Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to learn about Chilean women's reflections about womanhood and sexuality during midlife, we held focus group discussions (FGDs) with middle-aged Chilean women living in Stockholm, Sweden, or in Santiago, Chile. We used thematic content analysis for the qualitative data. Emerging themes follow; societal expectations on women, perceptions about sexual relationships, and women's social stigmatization. The women had since childhood been strongly influenced by a gender-imbalanced world, which had made them socially, economically, and biologically at higher risk for exploitation during life. More focus should be directed to middle-aged women's life situation and promotion of gender equity in society.

    Ten Swedish Midwives' Lived Experiences of the Care of Teenagers' Early Induced Abortions2011In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 32, no 5, p. 420-440Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This phenomenological hermeneutic study of 10 Swedish midwives illuminates the internal conflicts of values that arise when midwives' professional and personal belief systems clash in encounters with teenagers. Midwives may react emotionally in situations where teenagers ignore advice on contraception by rejecting the use of contraceptives and preferring early abortions as a contraceptive method. The results strengthen the suggestion that caregivers need support in reflecting on how to deal with conflicts of values that may otherwise hinder them in communicating effectively with teenagers and encounter their life-worlds and in challenging their individual assumptions on the shortcomings of using contraceptives.

    Meanings of being pregnant and having decided on abortion: Young Swedish women's experiences2005In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 26, no 9, p. 788-806Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In-depth interviews about the experience of being pregnant and having decided on abortion were conducted with 10 young Swedish women. A phenomenological-hermeneutic study disclosed a complex life world summarised as “I’m happy about my fertility but I choose not to give life now.” Four themes were revealed: encountering an unexpected understanding of oneself and one’s fertility, desiring to be understood by trusted others, trying out different positions in relation to pregnancy and abortion, and approaching planned adult motherhood. The results indicate that addressing young women’s concerns about fertility might be important in reproductive care.

    The Lived Experience of Genital Warts: The Swedish Example2004In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 25, no 5, p. 489-502Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our aim in this study was to analyze and describe young Swedish women's experiences of living with genital warts. Interviews with 10 young women, aged 16-21 years, were interpreted within a lifeworld hermeneutic tradition. The women experience themselves as victims of a disgusting disease. Furthermore, they appear to disregard the fact that their own lifestyles could be a risk factor for contracting venereal infections. On the other hand they get to know their bodies better after the gynecological examinations where the treatment begins. Their loss of innocence is considerable; thus it seems fair to compare this experience with earlier epochs' ideas about loss of virginity due to the first intercourse. Consequently the young women also start looking at themselves as adults, and they take responsibility for the consequences of their sexuality.
