ABSTRACT

Objectives: To determine the role of education on awareness level about menopause, to find out the common myth and false believes in this regards among urban women of Dehradun. Methodology: A structured questionnaire was prepared which includes the questions related to social demographics, educational status, awareness level and common sources of information for participants. Total 123 menopausal women between age group 45-65 actively participated in this study. All women were categorized as excellent, moderate and poor on the basis of their level of awareness & knowledge towards menopause and correlated with the educational status of the participants. Result: The study revealed that 94(76.42%) women had some form of formal education. Majority of women 58(47%) were in moderate and minimum 29 (23.6%) women were in the poor category. All 36 (29.3%) of women who had excellent level of awareness were highly educated mostly post graduated level. Majority of urban menopausal women believe that women should stop having sexual activities after menopause 32.4% and 10.3% women thought that menopause was a disease. Conclusion: The data suggests that there is a direct correlation between educational status and level of awareness about menopause. Uneducated women are highly unaware about menopause and associated problem and risks. There is an immediate need to spread awareness about menopausal health risk amongst all strata of society with special emphasis on poor literate women.
