SAMMANFATTNING 

Syfte: Att kartlägga kvinnor och partners sexuella hälsa och parrelation efter barnafödande. Metod: En webbaserad prospektiv tvärsnittsstudie med kvantitativ ansats.Resultat: Enkäten besvarades av 134 deltagare. Deltagarna ansåg att relationen hade förändrats till det bättre efter barnafödandet. Trötthet var den övervägande orsaken till förändrad sexlust. Cirka 70% av deltagarna rapporterade att sexlivet inte var lika prioriterat som tidigare. Partners önskade sex tidigare än kvinnorna efter barnafödande. Cirka 90% av deltagarna hade haft sex efter förlossningen och lusten kom vanligtvis tillbaka inom sex månader. Majoriteten rapporterade att informationen från barnmorskan angående sexuell hälsa var otillräcklig. 

Slutsats: Trötthet var den främsta orsaken till förändrat sexliv för både kvinnor och partners. Sexlivet var inte lika prioriterat som tidigare dock ansåg majoriteten av deltagarna att relationen förändrats till det bättre efter barnafödande. Barnmorskans information om sexuell hälsa ansågs otillräcklig.Kliniska implikationer: Genom att informera om sexuell hälsa och hur relationen kan förändras efter barnafödande på föräldragrupper, barnmorskemottagningar och barnavårdscentraler kan både kvinnan och partnern få en ökad kunskap samt förberedelse på förändringarna som väntar.

ABSTRACT 

Aim: To map women's and partners' sexual health and relationship after childbirth. Method: A web-based prospective cross-sectional study with a quantitative approach. Results: The survey was answered by 134 participants. The participants felt that the relationship had changed for the better after the delivery. Fatigue was the predominant cause of altered sex drive. About 70% of the participants reported that sex life was not as prioritized as before. The partners wanted sex earlier than the women after delivery. About 90% of the participants had had sex after delivery and the desire usually returned within six months. The majority reported that the information provided by the midwife regarding sexual health was insufficient. 

Conclusion: Fatigue was the main cause of altered sex life. Sex life was not as prioritized as before, however, the majority of participants felt that the relationship changed for the better after childbirth. The midwife's information about sexual health was considered insufficient. Clinical implications: By addressing about sexual health and how the relationship can change after childbirth in parent groups, midwife clinics and the childcare center, both the woman and the partner can gain increased knowledge and preparation for the changes that await.
