dc.description.abstractStatins are contraindicated for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Data evaluating statin use for women of childbearing age is limited; however, they may be used cautiously with adequate contraception. Pravastatin may be preferred based on its low tissue-penetration properties. Cholesterol-lowering with simvastatin 40 mg/d did not disrupt menstrual cycles or effect luteal phase duration (strength of recommendation: C).eng
