Data analysis with univariate, bivariate and multivariate. The results of the study based on the multivariate test showed the most dominant risk factor was age (P value = 0,000; OR = 58,381; 95% CI 8,507-400,642), work (P value = 0,001; OR = 15,391; 95% CI 2,871-82511) and husband's involvement in performing domestic roles (P value = 0.005; OR = 7.285; 95% CI 1,804-29,413).
