If you put the apostrophe after the letter 's' (womens') you will be adding the letter 's' to the word women (which is already the plural of the word woman) and mispelling it. The correct way is: women's.

How do I mark primary and secondary stress in English words?

Primary stress is where the word has its biggest concentration of sound. It is marked by an apostrophe placed at the beginning of the stressed syllable, and the apostrophe MUST be up-placed. Secondary stress is where the word has any sort of stress, yet it is not as relevant as the primary stress; the apostrophe is placed in the beginning of the stress syllable, but it MUST be down-placed. For example: in the word vaccination, it should be like this: [ˌvæk-sǝ-'nei-ʃǝn]. Where the "va" has the secondary stress, and the "na" has the primary stress.

Is this aposthrophe used correctly in this statement 'It maybe that the patient's cardiac symptoms are secontadry to her thyrotoxicosis?

If you mean the apostrophe in the word "patient's," yes, it is used correctly. The hint is the use of the singular possessive, "her," which refers to one patient, thus, "the patient's cardia..."; if the sentence were worded to include a plurality, "are secondary to their thyrotoxicosis," then one should use the plural possessive, "the patients' cardia...". If, however, you mean the apostrophe before the first word in the sentence, no, it is not used correctly: to be correct it requires a closing apostrophe at he conclusion of the sentence.
