Prevalence of female uterine myoma was determined using ultrasound diagnosis instrument, and correlation between health-related factors and uterine myoma was analyzed to investigate concrete factors for production of uterine myoma. Subjects in uterine myoma group and control group were asked to answer the questionnaire survey. The results were determined that prevalence of uterine mayma was 29.7%, and 40~49 aged group showed the highest level of uterine myoma by 41.4%. (p<0.05). The analysis showed that there were significant correlations between uterine myoma and collected variables such as age, marital status, occupational activity level, satisfaction level of life, weight, obesity, delivery history, breast feeding, abortion, and contraceptive experience (p<0.05).
