Investigation and Analysis of the Cognition of Menopause in Women Over 40 Years Old


Cognitive level




Objective: To investigate and analyze the cognition of menopause in women over 40 years old. Methods: Using the stratified sampling method, 224 females, age ranging from 40 to 60, from our university staff (Xi’an Medical University) and the surrounding communities were selected, and both online and offline questionnaires were distributed. Results: (1) 224 questionnaires were recovered, with 204 valid questionnaires, among which 100 questionnaires were from our university staff (aged 42–60 years old) and 104 questionnaires from the surrounding communities (aged 40–60 years old); (2) the cognition of menopause among the surveyed population was found to be related to occupation and education level; the cognition of menopause among university staff (76%) was significantly higher than that of the surrounding communities (45.19%); (3) most people were able to accept menopausal hormone therapy; the degree of acceptance among the university staff (80%) was found to be higher than that among the surrounding communities (60.58%). Conclusion: According to the recovered data, women over the age of 40 have less than ideal cognition of menopause, and although the cognitive level of the university staff on menopause was found to be significantly higher than that of the surrounding communities, their cognitive level still requires improvement.
