Researchers find possible link between miscarriage and heart attack

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Women who suffer multiple miscarriages may be at an increased risk of a heart attack later in life.

In a study of more than 11,000 women, German researchers found having at least one stillbirth increased the risk of heart attack by three and half times.

But women who had more than three miscarriages were five times more likely to have a heart attack after adjusting for other risk factors.
