Hi Pam,
I've gone thru menopause and it had no affect on my heart health. I experienced the 'normal' hot flashes, headaches, irregular cycles, and I was lucky enough not to have the mood swing symptoms. I started my cycle at age 14 and by age 48 I was done. (very happy day for me) :) Because of my heart problems and family history of cancer the doctors would not prescribe hormones.
BT shunt 1947 (quit fuctioning 6 months later), TOF Repair 1969, 10 heart Caths, ablation 2007, PVR/Maze procedure 2008 (also repaired aorta, tricuspid & PFO valves, replaced 39 yr old VSD patch)
I view my CHD as a challenge....not a curse

I have been through the menopause and no affect has been seen on my heart or that condition.

Just a normal stage in life with the normal ups and downs
