The obvious secret: With EDS you cannot always prevent brain aneurysms, but there some things you can do to reduce your risk. No smoking, no drinking, healthy diet, regular exercise, manage your stress and get screened more often. Take a good care.

Hormonal: The kidneys are a pivotal component of blood pressure control with multiple mechanisms that can elevate the blood pressure. Disease of the kidneys themselves can induce release of hormones that raise the blood pressure. The arteries that feed the kidneys can have partial blockages that cause the kidneys to secrete hormones to raise the bp. Glands that are adjacent can also release BP hormones.

Maybe: Not all women have problems but pre pregnancy risk counseling is recommended. There could be no problems at all to increased miscarriage to increased pelvic pain to increased risk of a floppy infant and others. Honest conversation is best.
