Abstract

Women upon reaching menopause often silently suffer debilitating physical and psychological symptoms. The peri and postmenopausal period constitutes a challenging transition time for women’s health, and good menopausal health is a crucial aspect in healthy and successful aging. These situations affects women globally however Malaysian women are mostly unaware how to manage onset of menopause. This study aims to systematically review published data for the prevalence and management of menopausal symptoms in Malaysian women. Findings indicated that Malaysia women experienced similar menopausal symptoms as other women globally. However, these studies indicated that Malaysian women lack the knowledge to manage and prepare for menopause. The menopausal transition demarks dramatic changes at the hormonal, physiological, and metabolic level. Eventually, our study will develop an online tool to provide information and manage menopausal symptom.
