March's Menopause Café - Menopause and Heart Health

Friday 10 March (2-3pm) - Dr Laila Kaikavoosi & Sarah Leroux

OMC Menopause Cafe - Fri 10 Mar (2-3pm)

Before the menopause, women in general have a lower risk of being affected by coronary heart disease. But after (peri)menopause, their risk increases.

With age, blood vessels become stiffer and this can result in high blood pressure where there is a risk factor for heart attacks and stroke.

March’s OMC Menopause Cafe on Fri 10 March 2-3pm will be hosted by Dr Laila Kaikavoosi and Sarah Leroux, one of OMC’s menopause nurses, who will cover the following aspects of (peri)menopause, our hormones and heart health:

  • The role of hormones in maintaining cardiovascular health
  • How (peri)menopause affects heart health
  • Risk factors that can influence cardiovascular health
  • The role of HRT with heart health
  • How can we maintain cardiovascular health after the menopause

OMC’s Menopause Cafe is open and free to attend for all OMC Patients, friends, and family but numbers are capped at 50 so please register early to avoid disappointment.
