  1. *P < .05. **P < .01. ***P < .001. Test: rp: Pearson correlation coefficient; rs: Spearman’s correlation coefficient (Since the data related to age, duration of menopause, and number of children was shown to have non normal distribution, Spearmen correlation was used for data analysis. Besides, educational level and monthly adequacy of family’s income were ordinal variables); t: Independent sample t-test
