Using the Model of Behavioral Health Outcomes, this study was conducted to begin to compare the quality of life and subjective experiences of four groups of women who may be defined as having surgical menopause. Forty women who had undergone hysterectomies volunteered for the study. They were racially and socioeconomically diverse; two were lesbians. They had experienced surgical menopause at an average age of 37. Only 10 had never taken hormone replacement therapy. Indepth interviews were conducted, and participants also completed the Menopause-specific Quality of Life Questionnaire (MENQOL). Women who had undergone bilateral oophorectomy or experienced premature ovarian failure following hysterectomy described physical, emotional, and sexual outcomes that were more negative than women who had experienced natural menopause after hysterectomy or who had undergone hysterectomy only. However, there were no significant differences between the groups on the MENQOL. The conclusion is that these four groups of women should not be treated as if they are a homogeneous group since their subjective experiences are quite different. Further research is needed to determine whether the MENQOL can be used to differentiate the groups.
