Pregnancy loss or infertility can increase risk of stroke in women: Study

New research shows women who have had a miscarriage or stillbirth, have an increased risk of stroke in later life. 

Women with a history of miscarriage or stillbirth have a higher risk of stroke in later life, a Queensland-led study has found.

For the study, the team analysed data of 6,20,000 women aged between 32 and 73 for a period of 11 years. Researchers found that the risk increased with each miscarriage or stillbirth.

As per the findings, more than 13,000 participants experienced a stroke, including 4,000 who died, during the study. Women who had miscarried once had a 7 per cent higher risk of strokes compared to those who had never experienced a miscarriage in pregnancy.

The risk was 26 per cent higher for a deadly stroke after two miscarriages. And after three or more miscarriages, the risk spiked by 82 per cent for a deadly stroke.
