The present study was aimed at investigating early menopause symptoms in women of reproductive age with post-hysterectomy and premature ovarian insufficiency conditions. A total of 100 patients were included in the study after following inclusion and exclusion criteria. Data were collected by using a questionnaire (Menopause Rating Scale) based on the psychological, urogenital and somatic symptoms of the patients. The outcomes of study indicated that majority of women showed menopausal symptoms between 36 to 45 years of age, with a mean age of menopause was 42±3 years. While in premature menopause cases, the average age was 36 to 40 year with a mean age to attain it was 38±2 year. Further, the rate of psychological distress were highest in premature menopausal women as compared to normal menopausal women. The premature menopausal women experienced higher prevalence of somatic and urogenital symptoms as compared to normal menopausal women. Conclusively, premature menopausal women need to be considered in special category so that health care providers can plan strategies for them accordingly.
