Heart disease is the number 1 killer for everyone

Best Answer

I'm not a doctor, but this would be my guess. Women tolerate a lot of pain. Once you go through child birth, there's pretty much nothing that compares to that pain. So anything you go through after that seems insignificant as far as warning signs go. Plus I think women take on a whole ton of stress a lot more than people realize due to how emotional and caring we are. We work, care for children and aging parents, we are wives, friends, cooks and housekeepers. So do the math. It's really an imbalanced situation I think and over time the body just can't take it. That's my opinion.
