"Menopause is a prevalent concern for women ranging from the ages of 40 to 60, as it is often associated with significant amounts of physical and emotional distress. Previous research has shown an association between women's attitudes toward menopause and the decision to seek hormone replacement therapy (HRT). In addition, research has shown that women who suffer from many physical symptoms tend to seek HRT. However, there is a lack of research investigating how physical symptoms during menopause may affect the relationship between attitudes toward menopause and the decision to seek HRT, anti-depressant medication, or psychotherapy.
