Abstract

In this study, we tried to identify the relationship between subjective health Status and job stress and andropause symptoms of middle-aged male who work.. The data was based on a survey of male aged 40 to 59 in four cities and collected by surveying 154 people with jobs. The general characteristics of the difference in andropause symptoms were marital status and job satisfaction. 68.83 percent of the subjects experienced andropause symptoms. There was a negative correlation between subjective health status and job stress(r=-.204, p=.011). The correlated factors of andropause symptoms included subjective health status(r=-.248, p=.002) and job stress(r=.341, p=<.001). Factors influencing andropause symptoms are job stress, subjective health status. There is a need to develop and apply nursing intervention programs that can reduce job stress and improve subjective health status in order to effectively manage menopause symptoms of middle-aged male who work.
