High blood pressure or hypertension during pregnancy appears to be associated with having "more bothersome" menopausal symptoms -- such as hot flashes, sleep disturbances and psychological symptoms -- later in life, according to a new study. The study, published in the journal Menopause on Wednesday, also suggests that women with a history of hypertension during pregnancy who use hormone therapy are more likely to report more bothersome symptoms than women with no such history.

Overall, high blood pressure during pregnancy and severe menopausal symptoms are both risk factors for cardiovascular disease in women. Yet just because they are linked does not mean one actually causes the other. The hypertensive disorder of pregnancy didn't cause a woman to have more hot flashes, and the hot flashes aren't going to cause heart disease," study. But they both appear to be markers of heart disease, and I think we just picked up the fact that they're linked together and that women who have one are more likely to have another.
