What Are the 5 Warning Signs of a Stroke in a Woman ?

Men are more likely to have a stroke, but women have a higher lifetime risk. Women are also more likely to die of stroke.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in five American women will have a stroke and nearly 60% will die from the stroke. Stroke is the third leading cause of death for American women.

There are many reasons why women are more prone to stroke.
Women live longer than men, and age is also an important risk factor for stroke. You are more likely to have high blood pressure. Pregnancy and birth control also increase the risk of stroke in women.

The more you know about the symptoms of stroke in women, the easier it is to get help. Prompt treatment can mean the difference between disability and recovery.
