Young people's knowledge and approach about premenstrual syndrome (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den föreliggande studien var att undersöka vilka ungdomars kunskaper och förhållningssätt var kring premenstruellt syndrom utifrån kategori kön och bostadsort. En enkätundersökning gjordes, som 209 icke helt slumpmässigt utvalda gymnasieelever, mellan 16-20 år från tre olika orter svarade på. Resultatet visade att det fanns en signifikant skillnad mellan kvinnor och män när det gäller ungdomarnas allmänna kunskaper och kunskaper om fysiska symtom kring PMS. Det innebär att kvinnorna hade allmänna högre kunskaper om PMS än männen. Detsamma gällde kunskaper om fysiska symtom. Undersökningen visade även att det fanns en skillnad i kunskaper om fysiska symtom mellan stor stad och mellanstor stad. Deltagarna i stor stad hade högre kunskaper om fysiska symtom än deltagarna i mellanstor stad. Resultaten ligger i linje med tidigare forskning som påvisar att män har en lägre kunskapsnivå än kvinnor om premenstruellt syndrom samt att män uppfattar de fysiska symtomen annorlunda än kvinnor.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine young people's knowledge and approach about premenstrual syndrome based on the category gender and the residence. A survey was made, that 209 not entirely randomly picked high school students, between the age of 16 and 20, from three different cities replied in. One conclusion was that there was a significant difference on how the males and the females responded concerning general knowledge about premenstrual syndrome. This indicated that the women had higher general knowledge about PMS than the men. This applied as well to the knowledge of physical symptoms. The survey also showed that there was a difference in knowledge about physical symptoms between large city and medium size city. The respondents from the large city had higher knowledge about physical symptoms than the respondents from the medium size city. The results correspond to earlier studies that indicate that men have lower levels of knowledge than women about premenstrual syndromes and that men perceives the physical symptoms different than women.
