SALAZAR M, Alide; PARAVIC K, Tatiana  e  BARRIGA, Omar A. Percepción de los hombres y sus parejas sobre la calidad de vida en el climaterio masculino. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2012, vol.77, n.1, pp.11-17. ISSN 0717-7526.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262012000100003.

Objective: To determine if there are differences between men's and their couples' perception of health related quality of life during the male climacteric period. Method: Cross-sectional and correlational design. The studied sample consisted of 49 couples, made up of men in a range of 40 to 65 years of age and women in a range of 40 to 60 years of age, enrolled in a Community Health Center in Concepción, Chile. Couples were interviewed in their homes after providing informed consent. Both members answered the Aging Males' Symptoms independently. Descriptive statistics, Kappa and Student-t tests were used. Results: The average age was 53.2 years and 50.7 for men and women, respectively. 58.4% of the men showed any kind of alteration of their quality of life, having more deterioration in the somato-vegetative and sexual subscale. By comparing men scores in three sub-scales to their couples' perception, only psychological sub-scale (p<0.01) presented a significant difference. Conclusion: Men's perception of quality of life related to health during the male climacteric period is not different from their couples' in somato-vegetative and sexual sub-scales. The psychological subscale is the only exception.
