Menopause and your heart
The subject of menopause, its symptoms and treatments has become a more prevalent topic in recent years. In this NCSEM online lecture series we will myth bust and outline what the evidence says around aspects of menopause.
Before menopause, cardiovascular disease risk is lower in women than men. After menopause, cardiovascular disease risk increases in women in association with the loss of the cardioprotective effects of estrogen. In this talk Dr Emma O’Donnell will examine the role of estrogen in cardiovascular health in women, and will discuss why replacement of estrogen with hormone therapy during menopause is not indicated for the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
