Women's Chromosomes May Affect Blood Pressure

Well, this is kind of neat to know (I have hypertension, I'm off the blood pressure medication now except for a mild diuretic---the hormones and the fact I work out 6 days a week really brought it down---I check it about five times a week). Check out this article from HealthScout.com-----and don't forget to monitor your blood pressure (I have a home monitor)--even if you have never had high blood pressure before, you might now (especially if you are feeling awful/are gaining weight, feel moody, etc.), and hypertension is nothing to fool around with.
