Author: Separavich M.A.

Abstract: This investigation analyzes the representations and experiences concerning menopause contained in the Brazilian website Menospausa - o site da mulher Madura, an interactivity space. It identifies climacteric/menopause aspects, as well as aspects of the experience of this process and of care actions. Ten short narratives were selected among the 48 posts, and they were analyzed according to Michael Bury's classification as: contingent, progressive, moral, epic/ heroic and regressive/tragic. It is concluded that, although menopause carries common body signals, the representations and experiences that are narrated about this body, menopause and care interact with medical and nonmedical knowledge, are heterogeneous, not necessarily negative and they are informed by the narrators' social and cultural context; finally, they are filtered by the website's characteristics.
