AbstractChinese factory workers (427) mainly of Fujian origin were found to have few climacteric symptoms. Of these, 65% and 50% reported having no circulatory and nervosity symptoms, respectively. Only 18% of women experienced hot flushes. The climacteric symptoms were more pronounced at the perimenopausal period (P < 0.001) when these women experienced more irregular menstruation. Low socio-economic status and educational level did not have adverse effects on the symptom reporting. High parity and employment may be positive factors in this period of change of life. A majority of women (74%) felt that the climacteric and menopause is a natural process which caused them no concern. Of those who were still menstruating 80% did not anticipate that they would have problems with the climacteric and menopause. These women's different climacteric pattern could be related to their introspective abilities to cope adequately or in an impersonal manner.
