Menstruation & Heart Attack

Menstruation & Heart Attack
Hormones and heart attacks. A new report shows a woman's risk of suffering a heart attack is higher during her period
because hormone levels are low.

Researchers say the risk of heart attacks is about three times higher than in the other three weeks. They found 11 of 21 women who had heart attacks had them during the week of their period. Heart attacks in the remaining ten women were spaced throughout the other three weeks of the cycle.
