Abstract


Menopause is known as the cessation of menstrual periods due to the degeneration function of ovaries to produce estrogen and progesterone hormones. The changing of both hormones will affect the physical and psychological change which will increase women’s anxiety. Employed women doesn’t easily experience anxiety since they have things to do that can distract the complaints felt during pre-menopause. Thus, the anxiety level of employed women is relatively lower than that of unemployed women.

The researcher used cluster sampling to take the samples. The samples of the research were 60 respondents. Analysis of data in this research used the Mann Whitney (U) test.

The result shows the difference between anxiety facing menopause in employed women with anxiety facing menopause in unemployed women i.e p value = 0.000 < α = 0.05.
