Objective. To determine the differences of catalase enzyme level between menopause and reproductive women. Methods. This is an analytic study with case control design, conducted in Adam Malik General Hospital since September 2014. Respondents are menopause women ages 45-60 years old and reproductive women ages 20-40 years old. Sampling was done using consecutive method. Menopause subject were given L-MMPI and MENQOL questionnaires to be filled. Then, blood were taken from all respondents to be sent to laboratory for catalase enzyme level analyses. Data were analyzed descriptively about the distribution frequency, mean, and standard deviation. Statistical analysis test by t-independent with 95% of confidence interval. Results. Majority reproductive and menopause women aged between 31-40 and 50-54 years old (56,2%; 50%), respectively. Mean level of catalase enzyme in reproductive and menopause women is 105,94 ± 22,37 mU/ml and 155,53 ± 12,24 mU/ml with a significant difference (p<0,05). From 29 MENQOL questions, highest score was sexual complaint 3,89 ± 1,65; followed with physical complaint 2,74 ± 1,9; vasomotor complaint 2,39 ± 1,34; and psycosocial complaint 2,36 ± 1,12. Conclusion. There is a significant difference of catalase enzyme level between menopause and reproductive women.
