Abstract:   (515 Views)
Cyclic mastalgia presentated with cyclic and regular recurence of breast pain and swelling in luteal phase of mensturation. This symptom associates with phobia in women and increasing unnecessary clinical admissions and interacts with social activities and familial communications. The object of this study was determination of prevalence of this symptom in reproductive age women in Rasht (center of Guilan province in northern Iran) and assessing the relation of it with three demographic variables, age, marriage status and employment outside the house.
Our study population was 15-42 years women of Rasht city. Sampling method was clustering based on random event. A questionnaire was filled through direct interview at subjects home. We used simple chi square and Mantel-Haenzel weighted chi square with a= 0.05 for analysing the data.
Prevalence of cyclic mastalgia in our sample (sample size : 1000 person) was 23.8%. (CI : 21.2% -26.4%). This symptom was more common after age of 30 (P<0.01), in marriaged women (p<0.05) and employed women (p<0.01) using simple chi square test. The difference of prevalences between employed and nonemployed women remain significant by weighting about other two factors. (OR: 1.76 CI : 1.28-2.42). Relation of other two factor and cyclic mastalgia didnchr('39')t remain significant after weighting for employment outside the house.
In conclusion employment outside the house is a related factor with cyclic mastalgin and this relation is not because of age increasing and marriage status and therefore pariety).
