In a new study researchers found that pregnancy losses increase risk of heart diseases

From the university of Cambridge researchers in their new study found that women who experience pregnancy loss are at  greater risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart diseases, stroke. 

According to the new study researchers also found that women who have five or more children are at a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. Now a days heart disease and stroke together are the leading cause of death in women.

During the pregnancy period mother’s body experiences changes in weight gain, higher levels of cholesterol, changes in the structure of the heart. These changes are temporary during the pregnancy period but sometimes these changes are known to be the risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

In researchers survey they found that women who experienced pregnancy loss and no live born children at a 64% greater risk of coronary heart disease and 46% greater risk of heart failure compared to women with one or two children. Womens with more than 5 childrens had a 38% higher risk of serious heart attack. 

One of the Junior researcher Dr Clare Oliver said “ Our works suggests that there is a relation between cardiovascular disease risk and both pregnancy loss and having  a large number of births”. This study does not designed to stress or worry women but it helps to empower women with knowledge that will help them to reduce their risk.
