Abstract: Aim: comparison of serum phosphorus levels in natural menopausal women with surgical menopausal women. Methods: The present analytical cross sectional study was conducted on patients (out patients and in patients) in Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Kamla Nehru Hospital, attached to IGMC Shimla. Group 1 (N=60): Women who had undergone hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo oophorectomy at least 6 month ago. Group 2 (N=60): Women who have attained natural menopause at least 1 year ago. Serum phosphorus was estimated by Molybdate U.V. method in mg/dl after the relevant quality control checks. Results: In the present study maximum number of the patients 26 (43.3%) were in the age group of 46-50 years for the post-surgical menopausal group and in the natural menopausal group maximum number of the patients were in the age group of 51-55 years 23 (38.3%). Maximum numbers of patients are multiparous in both groups. Total number of women having hypophosphatemia were 12 in which 3 (5.0%) were natural menopausal and 9 (15%) were postsurgical menopausal. Total number of women having hyperphosphatemia were 4 in which all were postsurgical menopausal. Conclusions: The prevalence of osteoporosis is very high in this part of India. Both natural and post- surgical menopausal women have lower levels of serum phosphorus.
