The Duel of Women on Menopausal Dilemmas

Reynaldo J. Ilumin [3] | Gemma DC Santos [2]

Abstract: This study was focused on studying the impacts of menopausal dilemmas among women. It investigated areas (psychological, social, and emotional) in which changes occur affecting them in so many ways. Moreover, coping mechanisms are included in the study. Of the 50 respondents, in which majority of them were from 51 years old and above, results showed that the impacts were: Psychologically, they easily get tired with their works and daily responsibilities; quick to quit; fast to feel annoyed and irritated; always feel so warm; easily get depressed; and often experience sleeping disorder. Emotionally, respondents easily feel sad. They feel so burdened with so many things even they do not have any problem. Socially, respondents lack the initiative and enthusiasm in attending social gatherings such as birthdays, weddings, among others. Respondents’ coping mechanisms include participating in activities that may make them feel better such as exercising, watching movies and sports games, praying and attending church services, and other enjoyable social activities.
