Resumen

QUINTERO PAREDES, Pedro P  y  PEREZ MARTIN, Martha M. Physical activity as a way to improve the symptoms during the climacteric. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.1, pp.42-53. ISSN 1561-3194.

A descriptive and longitudinal study was carried out in all patients in the climateric stage who attended the Gynecology office at "Luis Augusto Turcios Lima" Out-patient Clinic in Pinar del Río during January 1 to December 31 ,2005. The universe and sample were based on a total of 200 patients who were registered and followed. Data were processed by percentage analysis. Patients with spontaneous menopause attended the climacteric office more frequently than those women with surgical menopause. The short-term symptoms were the most present in these women . Women in this stage do not receive a proper familiar support and the most used therapy is the combined one, with insufficient use of physical activity and sport. Most women do not receive any help from a physical culture professional in spite of their interest in these activities in this stage of life.

Palabras clave : Climateric; menopause; medical care; exercise.
