There are no signs for women's or mens. But what can causes heart attacks for both mens and women's is high blood pressure, you can have a heart attack if you have surgery,and when you coronary are block and build up from cholesterol it can causes most heart attack.

Women tend to have more subtle warning signs of a heart attack than men such as shortness of breath, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting. Pay attention if you experience one or more of these symptoms (you'll likely have a combination) over the course of a few days. It's easy to mistake these red flags for stress or exhaustion.

Less common signs can be a dry cough which doesn't produce phlegm; abdominal bloating; jaw pain; less urination; sometimes the person might only feel pain localized in their left arm. Pay attention to left side of body and normal functioning.

Women don't often manifest the classic signs of a heart attack. They can have something as subtle as a metallic taste in their mouth. This is one of the reasons women die more often from heart attack. They have a weird symptom, but go on about their day until they just drop because the damage to the heart is too great. Men usually have the left arm pain and feeling of something heavy on their chest, which is why they recognize what's happening and get to a hospital.
