About the Webinar
Women with congenital heart disease (CHD) are enjoying the full range of reproductive years. Twenty years ago, there was little data about the risks of birth control and pregnancy in women with complex CHD. Now, these same women are once again pioneers. This time it’s in a growing area of cardiology – “aging with congenital heart disease”. Are you one of those women with CHD who is now confronting menopause? If so, you don’t want to miss this webinar. Register today to learn how menopause impacts your entire body and the potential risks and benefits of hormone replacement.
