Abstract

An explorative study was conducted among 100 post menopausal women to determine the perceived bio psycho social problems of post menopausal women and the measures used to cope up with the problems experienced by them. Data were gathered by interviewing the subjects at home. Demographic proforma, socioeconomic status scale, rating scale on perceived bio psychosocial problems and scale on coping strategies were used to collect the data. The findings showed that majority of women experienced mild to moderate problems and used both positive and negative coping strategies. Significant but low negative relationship was found between the perceived bio psycho social problems and coping strategies adopted by the post menopausal women. (r(98)= -.212, p<0.05). Significant association was found between coping and socioeconomic status (x2(2)=5.991, P<0.05).
