    Abuse in Women and Men with and without Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders2008In: Digestive Diseases and Sciences, ISSN 0163-2116, E-ISSN 1573-2568, Vol. 53, no 7, p. 1856-1864Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We aimed to investigate the history of abuse in childhood and adulthood and health-related quality of life (HRQL) in women and men with FGID in the general adult population. A cross-sectional study in a random population sample (n = 1,537, 20-87 years) living in Osthammar municipality, Sweden, in 1995 was performed. Persons with FGID (n = 141) and a group of abdominal symptom-free controls (SSF, n = 97) were selected by means of a validated questionnaire assessing gastrointestinal symptoms (the ASQ). Abuse, anxiety and depression (the HADS) and HRQL (the PGWB) were measured. Women with FGID had a higher risk of having a history of some kind of abuse, as compared with the SSF controls (45% vs.16%, OR = 2.0, 95% CI: 1.01-3.9; SSF = 1), in contrast to men (29% vs. 24% n.s.). Women with a history of abuse and FGID had reduced HRQL 91 (95% CI 85-97) as compared with women without abuse history 100 (95% CI 96-104, P = 0.01, "healthy" = 102-105 on PGWB). Childhood emotional abuse was a predictor for consulting with OR = 4.20 (95% CI: 1.12-15.7.7). Thus, previous abuse is common in women with FGID and must be considered by the physician for diagnosis and treatment of the disorder.

    Prevalence of intimate partner violence among women seeking termination of pregnancy compared to women seeking contraceptive counseling2014In: Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-6349, E-ISSN 1600-0412, Vol. 93, no 1, p. 45-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE:

    To estimate the prevalence of intimate partner violence among women seeking termination of pregnancy (TOP) in comparison to women seeking contraceptive counseling.

    DESIGN:

    Case-control study.

    SETTING:

    Family planning unit, Uppsala University Hospital.

    POPULATION:

    Women seeking TOP (n=635) and women seeking contraceptive counseling (n=591) answered a self-administered questionnaire regarding experience of intimate partner violence. In addition, the women were interviewed by specially trained staff.

    METHOD:

    Comparisons were made between the two groups and between those who had previously undergone TOP and those who had never done so with experience of intimate partner violence as the main outcome measure. Multivariate logistic regression was used to adjust for age, education, and occupation.

    RESULTS:

    In total 29% of women seeking TOP and 22% of women seeking contraceptive counseling reported experience of violence. Women seeking TOP were more likely to report physical violence (adjusted odds ratio (aOR)=1.6, 95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.2-2.1) and experience of violence during the past year (aOR=2.3, 95%Cl 1.1-4.8). Women who had ever undergone TOP were also more likely to report intimate partner violence compared to women with no history of TOP (aOR=1.7, 95%CI 1.3-2.3). Among women with repeated TOP, 51% reported experience of intimate partner violence.

    CONCLUSION:

    Women seeking TOP reported to a greater extent experience of intimate partner violence. However, women seeking contraceptive counseling had also a high prevalence of violence experiences. These results stress the importance of caregivers approaching both groups of women with questions about intimate partner violence in order to identify exposed women and offer them help.
