Not any more then any other purebred cat. The is incidence of HCM in bengals but not as much as some other breeds.
The one thing I do notice with some bengals is they might have a more sensitive stomach/digestive system then other breeds. I find that a raw diet takes care of that problem though. Not all bengals have this problem either so im not sure if this problem is higer in bengals then other breeds.
No, females are not prone to health issues any more then males. Pregnancy and nursing do take a toll on the cats immune system though so a pregnant or nursing female my be more prone to getting ill then a non-nursing, non-pregant female or a male.
