Role of the body self and self-esteem in experiencing the intensityof menopausal symptoms

Summary
Aim.
The aim of the study was to test differences in self-esteem and strength of the body self, body image, comfort with closeness with others and body protection among women reporting high and low intensity of psychological, vasomotor and somatic symptoms of menopause.
Method. The sample included 201 women aged 45–55 years. The Menopause Symptom List was used to test the intensity of menopausal symptoms, the Body Self Questionnaire was used to diagnose the body self, and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale was used to examine participants’levels of self-esteem. Differences between women experiencing high and low intensity of symptoms were analyzed using Student’s t-test for independent samples.
Results. Women experiencing high-intensity psychological, vasomotor and somatic symptoms of menopause showed significantly lower self-esteem and poorer body-self functioning in all its dimensions except for body protection.
Conclusions. Women experiencing high-intensity psychological, vasomotor and somatic symptoms of menopause demonstrated poorer functioning of the body self and lower self-esteem
