National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Each symptom is rated by the subject according to its severity using a four point rating scale.
Scores 11 menopausal symptoms: Anxiety A — sum items 1 to 6 Depression D — sum items 7 to 11 Symptom 21 is a probe for sexual dysfunction. Hot Flush Behavior Scale or Hunter menopause scale.
These values are statistically highly significant. The number of items in each domain and the item numbers that refer to that domain are noted below:. In this specific population, climacteric symptoms presenting in all menopausal groups, as measured with the Greene Climacteric Scale, resulted to be higher than previously reported standards and age, parity and educational level were independent risk factors.
A numerical index that scores 11 menopausal symptoms: The purposes of the present study were to assess the factorial structure and reliability of the Greene Climacteric Scale GCSand provide normative data hreene a sample of postmenopausal Portuguese women.
Data were analyzed by reliability, correlation and confirmatory factor analyses. Like the EQ-5D-3L but each dimension has 5 levels: As the leading and preferred supplier of translation and linguistic validation solutions to the life science industry, we provide zero-defect translations you can trust.
