This study has investigated female representations of body physiology, emotional relationships and their professional future during the climacteric. The latter represents the biological, social, emotional and existential ‘border’ between the fertile phase and the subsequent phase, whose effects influence the representation of the self and of life planning in general. The outcome of the data analysis shows that a ‘natural’ pessimistic expectation regarding women’s body physiology confirms previous results in the literature that have documented how menopause can cause a sense of loss in women. On the other hand, however, we have also noticed a positive, future-oriented trend as far as psycho-social dimensions are concerned.
