According to a new study, women who experience a stillbirth or repeated miscarriages have a dramatically increased risk of heart attack
later in life.
Compared with women
who never had a miscarriage, women
who had more than three were about five times more likely to ever suffer a heart attack, the study found. Having just one stillbirth more than tripled the risk of heart attack.
Each miscarriage a woman has increases her risk of heart attack by about 40 percent, according to the study.
