Author(s): Dr. Reena J Wani, Dr. Manitha Madar and Dr. Sachin Paprikar
Abstract: Aims & Objectives
. To identify urogenital disorders in apparently asymptomatic perimenopausal women,
. To assess the level of awareness regarding various urogenital disorders in perimenopausal women coming to tertiary care hospital,
. To calculate the incidence of urogenital disorders in perimenopausal age group women.
Methodology: Case control study was undertaken in perimenopausal women after dividing the min 2 groups. Group A (cases) consisted of perimenopausal women coming to OPD with any one or more symptoms and Group B (controls) consisted of asymptomatic health care workers. A structured questionnaire was used to assess their responses.
Results: In group A (symptomatic women coming to OPDs) -symptoms of itching, vaginal discharge, dyspareunia and SCOPV were significantly more than group B (health care workers). However symptoms of nocturia, frequent micturition urinary incontinence and SUI were Comparable in both groups. As expected, group B had significantly more awareness about urogenital symptoms, being health care workers themselves but very few of them had consulted a health care practitioner foe same.
Conclusion: Our study shows that in spite of high prevalence of urogenital symptoms in women of the perimenopausal age group, very few recognize this as a disease and fewer seek treatment.
