Abstract

Background: Menopause is defined as the point in time when menstrual cycles permanently cease due
to the natural depletion of ovarian oocytes from aging. The diagnosis is typically made retrospectively after
the woman has missed menses for 12 consecutive months. Pre-menopause is a biological stage in a woman’s
life when she is no longer fertile and is marked by the cessation of menstruation. The study aimed to assess
the effectiveness of education and information technology on menopausal syndrome among rural and urban
premenopausal women.
Methods: Pre experimental research design was used with 50 rural premenopausal women and 50 urban
premenopausal women samples who matched the inclusion criteria were selected by simple random sampling
technique. Demographic variables were collected by self structured questionnaires. The results of the study
are in rural, 31(62%) women had adequate knowledge in pre test and 40(80%) in post test, 15(30%) women
had moderate knowledge in pre test and 10(20%) in post test, 4(8%) women had adequate knowledge in pre
test. In urban 42(8%) women had adequate knowledge in pre test and 39(78%) in post test, 7(14%) women
had moderate knowledge in pre test and 11(22%) in post test, 1(2%) women had adequate knowledge in pre
test on menopausal syndrome among rural and urban premenopausal women.
Conclusion: The study concludes that majority of the women had a negative outlook towards premenopausal
syndrome and their management. After providing information regarding premenopausal syndrome and
management women had a positive outlook.
