Heart attacks suck.

Do women ever get heart attacks? You never hear about women having heart attacks, only men. Not that I wish heart attacks on women but I wonder why they don't get them nearly as much. What is their secret?

They are catching up because women are getting fatter by the decade. It used to be women had to stay in shape to marry.

Yup. I survived a cardiac arrest in 2008.

Thing about women is that symptoms may be different from men. Women often don’t recognize a heart attack when they have one. So help is often too little, too late.

When I was a girl, I was told I wouldn’t have to worry about heart attack because women’s hormonal makeup prevents heart attacks. Found out the hard way that isn’t true.

Heart disease is, I believe, the leading cause of death for women...http://www.cdc.gov/Women/lcod/2009/index.htm

They’ve got other problems - as in Breast Cancer and Ovarian Cancer (the second of which is about to take out a very close relative of mine). They get hit in the prime of life too...just by different means.

They are stress donors, not stress recipients.

One sure bet is that my ex cannot have a heart attack.

yes they do get them though not like men do

testosterone is a real amp agent to the body

i can promise you

mine has serve me well for better or worse for years..still does...my brain wants to fight at the drop of a hat and my brain wants to chase wifey 24/7 but my old body sez “hold on now fool”

women get atherosclerosis but not cardio arterial clots so much which is the real killer

and even when they smoke if not overweight they tend to have lower BP

it’s just how we are engineered

men fight to protect or get mates..or used to anyhow

women are or were here for far different reasons

even though social order totally convoluted we are still wired like 12,000 BC largely

look to be changing quick though...educated class males are much much more feminine now than in mine and Matt or Squantos day

we are all fairly old now but still...dare I say...masculine

the irony is women actually fare better with female hormone preservation all things being equal

men are not made to have 18 year old free T levels at 65

ED dope or not

The answer is in your question! After years of hen-pecking the hubby’s heart finally succombs to the starts and stops of dealing with women! /jk of course...well kind of....
