"Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death of women in the United States and only one in five women know that, according to the American Heart Association. They also say that women are less likely than men to call 911 for themselves when experiencing symptoms of a heart attack." - Source
It's easy to do because women experience symptoms of a heart attack differently than men.
In a Circulation study on early female heart attack symptoms, common female heart attack symptoms include:
• shortness of breath (57.9%)
• weakness (54.8%)
• unusual fatigue (42.9%)
Women also had these symptoms:
• Lower chest discomfort
• Upper abdominal pressure or discomfort that may feel like indigestion
• Back pain
Heart health is vitally important to sexual health. Without adequate blood flow to the body, you'll experience weakness, pain, and it will be difficult to become fully aroused. In fact, it has recently become well known that erectile dysfunction is a fairly reliable symptom of heart disease in men.Source
