Aim: The current study was conducted to examine the psychometric properties, including validity content, internal consistency and construct validity and comparison attitude between girls and menopause women

Materials and methods:
This is a psychometric study on 350 healthy postmenopausal Iranian women referred to healthcare centers in Semen and Mashhad cities, aiming to examine reliability, content validity and construct validity. Second parts of study compared comparison attitude between girls and menopause women

با توجه به سرایط خاص ناشی از بحران کرونا و عدم دسترسی مستقیم به دختران و همچنین زمان محدود پژوهش تعدادی پرسشنامه نگرش به یایسگی رو بصورت انلاین و تعدادی بصورت حضوری توسط 200زن یایسه و 200دخترهای نوجوان تکمیل کردند

Mean age of subjects were 55.45±5.58 years. Cronbach's alpha was 0.68% and original modified model was reported to be unidentified. Therefore, the exploratory factor analysis was performed through principal-component analysis with varimax rotation. Given the results of scree plot, eigenvalues and the interpretability of the different factor solutions factor, five factors structures were identified as the most appropriate solutions for attitude toward menopause. These five factors explained 48% of variance.
در دومین قسمت 200 زن یائسه و 200 دختر مشارکت داشتند میانگین نمره نگرش زنان یائسه 66/5 ± 67/45 و میانگین نمره نگرش دختران 74/5 ± 75/48 بود که از نظر آماری تفاوت معنی دار بود(001/0 ˂). ضریب همبستگی بین سن و نمره نگرش هم برابر با (r=-0.228 , P˂0.001)بود. یعنی به ازای هر سال افزایش سن شرکت کنندگان 0.228 از نمره نگرش انها کاسته شده بود و این کاهش معنی دار بود.
