There was a positive relation between menopause symptoms and menopause knowledge (r=-.159, p=.006). But, between menopause symptoms and menopause attitude, there was a negative correlation (r=-.130, p=.023). This result showed a significant difference between menopause symptoms and the variables of age, education, job, physical health, and hobby.
