Women's Fertility Problems Linked to Higher Risk for Heart Disease
Women who have a difficult time getting pregnant are at a higher risk of developing heart disease, a recent study suggests. Researchers found women who were unable to become pregnant for at least five years, but eventually did, had a 19 percent increased risk of heart disease, compared with women who had no problems getting pregnant. But whether such "subfertility," as it is called, is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease still remains unclear.
