Abstract [sv]

Av par i fertil ålder som aktivt försöker få barn är det 10-15 procent som inte lyckas inom ett år och räknas då till kategorin ofrivilligt barnlösa. Att drabbas av ofrivillig barnlöshet innebär stor sorg och prövning för det drabbade paret. Med hjälp av assisterad befruktning kan parets möjligheter till graviditet öka. En IVF-process innebär psykisk och fysisk påfrestning, vilket ställer stora krav på vårdens bemötande, kompetens och stöd. Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur par som genomgår IVF-behandling upplever vårdens bemötande samt om och i så fall hur parets relation påverkats under och efter IVF-processen. Studien har en kvalitativ ansats och för att uppfylla syfte och besvara frågeställningar har semistrukturerade intervjuer använts som metod. Undersökningen består av fem intervjupar vilka genomgått eller genomgår en IVF-process. Resultatet visar att respondenterna från en början upplevde ett varmt och välkomnande bemötande, men att det efterhand förändrades. Respondenterna beskriver brister hos vårdpersonalen såsom kränkning, kompetens- och tidsbrist. Vidare framgår att flertalet upplever att de blivit bemötta som en i mängden, framförallt av läkare, då de inte fått den individanpassade vård som krävdes. Resultatet visar att paret under IVF-processen utsätts för flertalet påfrestningar, vilket kan vara krävande för parrelationen. Trots detta upplever paren att påfrestningarna medfört en stärkt parrelation.

Abstract [en]

Of couples of reproductive age who are actively trying to conceive, 10-15 percent fails within a year, and is then counted in the category of involuntary childlessness. Couples that suffer from infertility often experience great emotional distress. With the help of assisted reproduction, the couple's possibility of a pregnancy may increase. The IVF process involves mental and physical stress, which leads to heavy demands on health care treatment, expertise and support. This study aims to examine how couples undergoing IVF treatment experienced the response they received from health care system. This includes whether or not the couple's relationship was affected during and after the IVF treatment process and if so how it was affected. The study was made with a qualitative approach. Semi-structured interviews have been our method for obtaining data this study. The study is based on interviews of five couples who underwent, or are still undergoing an IVF treatment process. The results show that respondents initially experienced a warm and friendly welcome from the health care system, but it gradually changed for worse. The respondents describe what they see as inadequacies of healthcare providers such as offensiveness, lack of skills, and time constraints. Furthermore, it appears that the majority feels that they have been overlooked, especially by doctors, when they did not receive the personalized care they needed. The results show that during the IVF treatment process the couples are subjected to intense and varying forms of stress that can be hard on their relationships. Despite the strain it has put on them, the couple's feel that it has strengthened their relationships.
