Author(s): Dr. Pintu Sil
Menopause is a stage of every woman’s life when normal menstrual cycles permanently ceased due to aging. This phase of life typically occurs between 45 to 55 years of age. Several changes occur in woman’s body after attending the menopause stage. Present study also designed to find out the changes occurred on selected physiological health parameters among women after attending the menopausal stage. A total of 30 women in between the age of 40 to 50 years were selected randomly for this study. Among them 15 were in pre-menopause stage and aged between 40-45 years (group-A) and rest 15 were selected in between 45-50 years (group-B) who were in post menopausal stage. Selected anthropometric and physiological health parameters were considered for comparison. All parameters were measured by standard tools and procedures. Mean and standard deviation have used as descriptive statistics and significance of difference between mean was computed by using t-test. Only 0.01 level of significance was considered in this study. Results revealed that the difference in the mean value for weight, chest circumference, waist circumference and hip circumference were higher for Gr-A than the mean value of Gr-B and were statistically significant. The mean value for BMI of Gr-A were also higher than the Gr-B and the t-value found also significant. But the difference in mean values for WHR and PBF of Gr-A were not significant statistically. In physiological parameters studies reported no-significantly difference in RHR and systolic and diastolic blood pressure between pre and post menopausal women.
