Abstract

Menopause is a natural physiological event that accompanies approximately one third the life of a woman, in most cases causing alterations and frequently pathological symptoms varying from woman to woman. Psychologically, the arrival in this stage of life is often associated with rethinking that makes the woman very restless, confused, and emotionally fragile. To date, there are few data that can demonstrate a causal connection between level of depression and menopause. The mood swings that occur during menopause, however, depend not only on hormonal changes but are also influenced by social stressors. The present study wanted to approach the mood in post-menopausal women and the possible positive social role of physical activity on mood’s level
