FORT ATKINSON – Nancy Aguirre, MD with Fort HealthCare Center for Women’s Health will be hosting a FREE information seminar about issues with menopause on Tuesday, November 8, starting at 6:30 p.m. in the Fort Memorial Hospital Auditorium in Fort Atkinson. Individuals are invited to register for the seminar online at FortHealthCare.com/Classes (click on “A Healthier You”), or by calling 920-568-5244.
According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, menopause is the time in a woman’s life when she stops having menstrual periods. The years leading up to this point are called perimenopause, or pre-menopause. Menopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years, and many changes occur within the body.
The average age of menopause is 51 years, but it can occur for women age 40 up to 58 years. The menopausal transition takes many years for most women. At the seminar, Dr. Aguirre will be discussing topics related to menopause, as well as options for treatment and care solutions.
Dr. Aguirre is a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology, dedicated to improving women’s health. In addition to caring for all aspects of women’s health, Aguirre has a particular interest in providing minimally invasive surgeries, offering care for continence issues, contraceptive management and fertility issues.
This free seminar is also a way for community members to meet Dr. Aguirre. She is one of five providers at Fort HealthCare Center for Women’s Health, along with Satwant Dhillon, MD, Julie Mohktar, DO, Christine Chuppa, MD, and Joyce Dedrick, APNP. The Center for Women’s Health is part of Forth HealthCare’s Fort Medical Group network of clinics and strives to help women with issues pertaining to fertility, menopausal care, urinary continence counseling, birth control and STD counseling and management, laparoscopic and gynecologic surgeries, and routine gynecological care.
