Many women with hard-to-detect forms of non-obstructive CAD may have gone to doctors at other clinics without getting a precise diagnosis. At Stanford, we have the tools, technology, and knowledge to find these conditions and provide women with an accurate diagnosis so you can start getting the proper treatment right away.
If you are on any medications for CAD and are pregnant, are planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding, our cardiologists work with the doctors at Stanford’s Gynecology Clinic to ensure that the drugs you are using are safe for you and your baby.
Some women can develop cardiac issues during pregnancy that require specialized expertise to manage.
If you developed cardiac risk factors during pregnancy, such as diabetes or hypertension, that can increase your risk of heart attack in the future, we will work with you to manage those risk factors after the baby is born.
