    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.

    Experiences of sexual violence among women seeking services at a family planning unit in Sweden2019In: Upsala Journal of Medical Sciences, ISSN 0300-9734, E-ISSN 2000-1967, Vol. 124, no 2, p. 135-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Experiences of sexual violence among women can lead to ill health and increase the risk of lifetime co-occurrence of violence. Identifying risk factors and victims facilitates development of effective programmes for treatment and prevention of additional violence. The primary aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and correlates of sexual violence experiences among women seeking care at a family planning unit in Sweden. A secondary aim was to examine associations between sexual violence and other types of violence.Methods: Women (n=1226) seeking services at a family planning unit, Uppsala University Hospital, Sweden, answered a questionnaire and were interviewed about experiences of sexual violence. Bivariate associations were examined using the chi-square test.Results: Experiences of sexual violence were reported by 27% of the participants, of which 57% were exposed when they were younger than 18 years old. Women with experiences of sexual violence were more likely to have lower education (P=0.024), were students or without occupation (P=0.037), and were not in a current relationship (P<0.001). Women with experiences of non-partner sexual violence were more likely to have experiences of intimate partner violence (P<0.001).Conclusion: Prevalence of sexual violence was high among the respondents. Many women were young when they were exposed to violence, and lifetime co-occurrence of violence was common among women with experiences of non-partner sexual violence.

    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.
