    It is always on my mind: Women’s experiences of their body when living with hirsutism2009In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 30, no 5, p. 358-372Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many women suffer from excessive hair growth, often in combination with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It is unclear how hirsutism influences such women's experiences of their bodies. Our aim is to describe and interpret women's experiences of their bodies when living with hirsutism. Interviews were conducted with 10 women with hirsutism. We used a qualitative latent content analysis. Four closely intertwined themes were disclosed: the body was experienced as a yoke, a freak, a disgrace, and as a prison. Hirsutism deeply affects women's experiences of their bodies in a negative way.
