This qualitative research was conducted using phenomenological methods. Eight participants were recruited by purposive sampling in the clinic of obstetric and gynecology at X hospital Jakarta. This study identified five themes that describe the meaning of experiences of women after cervical cancer therapy are the adverse effects after therapy, adaptation to reduce physical complaints after therapy, the hope of life after therapy, social support, and perception of health care.
