Menopause Symptom List was developed in Australia as a tool to depict severity and intensity of symptoms related to menopause. Three scales of the questionnaire – psychological, vasomotor and somatic symptoms – were extracted by factor analysis. The paper gives account of the Polish version of the questionnaire (Moje samopoczucie), its validity and reliability. Factor analysis has confirmed the original 3 factors structure of the questionnaire. Realiability coefficients (test-retest, Cronbach’s and Spearmann-Brown’s coefficient) were sufficiently high. Validity was estimated by comparing the results of the questionnaire and a physician’s evaluation of intensity and severity of menopausal symptoms. Most subjects with high questionnaire scores were also given high scores on medical record. Results of women with different menopausal status were significantly different. The scores changed significantly in women treated with hormone replacement therapy. All these results indicate that Polish version of Menopause Symptom List is a valid tool to be used in studies on menopausal transition.
