Conclusion In the working women, majority women had moderate knowledge on premenopausal syndrome. Women’s knowledge on premenopausal syndrome was influenced by some of the demographic variables.

 In the non working group more than half of the women had inadequate

In the non working group more than half of the women had inadequate knowledge on premenopausal syndrome. These findings suggested that extensive health education programmes were needed to improve knowledge among non working women.
