Even though the incidence of atrial fibrillation is higher in men than women, a review of past studies and medical literature shows that women are more likely than men to experience symptomatic attacks, a higher frequency of recurrences, and significantly higher heart rates during atrial fibrillation, which increases the risk of stroke.
