Abstract: The aim of this cross-sectional study was to describe menopausal symptoms in Iranian women in Tabriz, north-west Islamic Republic of Iran. A total of 200 women aged 45-55 years completed a Farsi version of the Greene climacteric scale. The mean total Greene scores for 20 items [1 item was excluded] were 29.34 [SD 9.84] for perimenopausal and 28.14 [SD10.15] for postmenopausal women. Perimenopausal and postmenopausal women did not differ significantly in any of the subscales or individual items, except on 2 items: [difficulty in sleeping] and [parts of the body feeling numb ortingling]. Comparisons with studies in other countries show that women in Tabriz suffer more menopausal symptoms than European woman
