Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study describes the menopausal experiences of women with physical disabilities and their knowledge and use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). 166 women completed a mailed survey of demographic and disability characteristics, health history, menopausal information, and HRT knowledge. The typical respondent was a 52-year-old, Anglo, college-educated woman with a neuromuscular disorder. Half of the menopausal women were taking HRT, and 47% had a hysterectomy. HRT use was significantly associated with hysterectomy status, amount of HRT information received from providers, and regular gynecologic examinations. Effective interventions are needed to assist these women in making key health decisions during menopause.
