Study finds link between miscarriages, heart attacks

December 2, 2010

Scientists analyzed data from more than 11,000 women who had been pregnant at least once and found that 25-percent had experienced at least one detectable miscarriage. Each miscarriage increased heart attack risk by 40-percent.

Authors say recurrent miscarriage and stillbirth are strong predictors for heart attack and that these women should be monitored for cardiovascular problems.
