Range 40-64 yrs 40-65 yrs
Overall mean 48.58±5.64

Table 1 showing that mean ages of study population was 48.58 with standard deviation of 5.64 years.
Mean age of patient in laparoscopy group was 47.64 with standard deviation 5.19 years as compared to 49.51 with standard deviation 5.95 years in abdominal hysterectomy group.
By using chi-square test, statistically no significant difference was found between mean ages of patients in two groups. (?2-value=3.68 , p value=0.29).
Youngest patient in present study in open and laparoscopic hysterectomy group was of 40 years respectively whereas eldest patient in open and laparoscopic hysterectomy group was of 65 years and 64 years respectively.
Maximum number of cases that is 22(39.29%) in our study were between the age group of 46-50 years in TAH group and 26(46.43%) between the age group 40-45years in TLH group

Post menopausal 38(67.86%) 31(55.36%)

In the present study TAH group 18(32.14%) patients were perimenopausal while 38(67.86%) patients were post menopausal.
In TLH group 25(44.64%) were perimenopausal while 31(55.36%) were post menopausal.
By using chi-square test, statistically no significant difference was found between postmenopausal and perimenopausal patients in two groups. (?2-value=1.85 , p value=0.15).
