Guidlines to prevent strokes in women
The American Heart Association has released the first guidelines for preventing stroke in women.
When women have a stroke, it's much different than symptoms in a man.
This is because of complications that arise from pregnancy, using oral contraceptives, and other factors.
Many of the recommendations focus on more aggressive treatment of high blood pressure before and during pregnancy, and suggest women get screened for the condition before taking the pill.
