Cardiac Arrhythmias/pots In Women


Recommended Posts

I found this interesting article explaining why more women than men experience certain arrhythmias. It also mentions POTS - super interesting read as I have SVT & POTS (though my POTS symptoms have gotten 80% better through my lifestyle changes and exercise over the years)


Something of note for me personally was talking about how rising progesterone and falling estrogen during the menstrual cycle contributes to the symptoms more (definitely can confirm that!). This says that progesterone plays a big role in your cardiac electrophysiology. I've been on the depo shot, which is pure progesterone and makes you not have a cycle. I feel so much better on it.

Anyway, would love to know everyone's thoughts.
