Symptoms of Menopause and their Relationship to Neuroticism among Lebanese and Egyptian Women

Auther : Ahmed M. Abdel-Khalek Mayssah A. El Nayal Olfat K. Mahmoud

This study aimed to explore the differences in menopausal symptoms and neuroticism between two samples of Lebanese and Egyptian women who have already reached menopause. The sample constituted of 191 women from the Lebanese (N=90) and Egyptian (N=101) societies. The scales used were the Menopause Symptoms Questionnaire (MSQ) (Abdel-Khalek  El Nayal, 1990) and the Factorial Arabic Neuroticism Scale (Abdel-Khalek, 2009). The Lebanese sample scored a significantly higher mean score compared to their Egyptian counterparts on the total MSQ as well as in 12 items listed in the scale of menopause symptoms, and neuroticism. The results of the study were discussed in the light of previous studies, taking into consideration the social circumstances of the two study samples. It was concluded that conducting further cross-cultural research proves to be essential to understand the nature of menopausal symptoms in other countries, in addition to setting interventive programs in order to develop women's skills in combating menopausal symptoms.
Keywords: Menopause, Neuroticism, Women, Lebanon, Egypt.
