Heart Attacks

Did you know that the symptoms of a heart attack in men and women are different? Many women

do not recognize their symptoms as a heart attack because they could potentially point to

another problem. This is concerning because many women could be at risk because of

fluctuations in hormones. This can happen due to menopause or from being on a prescription

oral birth control.



Let’s find out what you need to know about heart attack basics. We will look at what puts

women at risk for heart attacks. It is also important to recognize the signs and know when to

talk to your doctor. With the information provided, you can be armed and ready should you

happen to ever have a heart attack.



Who is at Risk for a Heart Attack?

A good question to ask your doctor is, “Am I at risk for experiencing a heart attack?”

Currently, the actual process that leads up to a heart attack is not understood fully yet.

Doctors and researches do know that there are several things that put you more at risk for a

heart attack.



You are more at risk for a heart attack if you have one or more of the following health

issues:

High cholesterol
Habitual smoking
Chronic stress
High blood pressure
Obesity
Long term use of hormone replacement or oral contraception or even the patch or ring
Heart disease

Heart attacks can be very serious. If your heart is starved for oxygen because of a

completely blocked artery, this most often triggers a heart attack. If you have any of the

risk factors listed above, you should be under close watch by your doctor to correct the

problems that you can so you can eliminate the risk of a heart attack. It is thought that in

women, the estrogen they have before menopause protects them from a heart attack which is why

many women suffer heart attacks after menopause since their estrogen drops.



What Should I Know About Prevention?

Whether or not you have already had a heart attack, it is never too late for heart attack

prevention measures. If your doctor has prescribed you medications, take them as directed.

Never discontinue a medication on your own. Those medications are things such as blood

thinners, beta blockers (to lower your blood pressure), ACE inhibitors and any cholesterol

lowering medications.



The most helpful part of prevention is making lifestyle changes. You cannot expect a

medication to take care of all your problems. Changing your diet, being more active, quitting

smoking, maintaining a good healthy weight and finding ways to eliminate stress in your life

are key in prevention as well.



You should speak with your doctor about any medications you take that could also put you at

risk and decide whether or not to eliminate those as well. Recent studies have found that

there are certain medications that can cause your blood to clot more than it normally would.
