Background. Despite the huge achievements in the study of the period of perimenopause, this problem continues to attract the attention of both scientists and practitioners, as is the problem of managing patients with endometriosis disease. According to WHO’s many demographic projections, a more dramatic increase in the number of older people is expected in the 21st century, which necessitates the establishment of national and international health systems for older women. The ultimate goal of these programs is to improve the quality of life of women. Materials and methods. Examined 87 women in the period of perimenopause with endometriosis from the age of 45 to 55 years, who contacted a gynecologist about complaints related to the manifestations of menopausal syndrome. Results. According to the quality of life questionnaire -SF36, in women with endometriosis during the period of perimenopause before treatment, a decrease in the quality of life was noted, in the main group - 56%, in the control group - 72%. Conclusion. This study allowed us to determine the quality of life in the period of perimenopause in women with endometriosis (operated and not operated), to analyze the somatic. Also, improve non-hormonal methods of treating menopausal syndrome in women with endometriosis.
