dc.description.abstractAttitudes toward menopause and aging play a potential role in the perimenopausal experience. The purpose of this descriptive cross-sectional study was to examine the relationship between the attitudes toward menopause and attitudes toward aging. A sample of one hundred sixty-one midlife Filipino American women was surveyed using the Women's Health Questionnaire and Attitudes To Menopause and Aging questionnaire. The results showed significant relationship between attitudes toward menopause and attitudes toward aging .. There was no correlation between the biological (age, menopausal phase), and psychosocial (education, current relationships) dimensions with attitudes toward menopause and aging. Filipino women view menopause as a natural life stage rather than a disease process, therefore, the results of this study may reflect the strong influence of culture in their positive attitudes toward menopause and aging.en_US
