A study recently conducted at Mayo Clinic found that women who had high blood pressure during pregnancy were more likely to experience bothersome menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy and hot flashes are both linked to heart disease risk.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Stephanie Faubion, the study's lead author, will discuss the key takeaways from the study and explain where more research is needed. Dr. Faubion is the Penny and Bill George Director for Mayo Clinic's Center for Women's Health.
