  1. No reproductive factor was associated with severity of menopausal symptoms in model of urogenital
  2. Effect of age as confounding variable was controlled. Using multiple linear regression and using the Backward model all significant variables from Table 2 that were effective on menopausal symptoms were included in the regression model, then non-significant variables were removed in the multiple regression steps by the Backward regression process. Age at first pregnancy for women who were never pregnant was defined with replacing missing values method, with the mean of Age at first pregnancy for women who experienced pregnancy
