Will Simvastatin Stop A Women's Period From Happening?

Around the same time I started taking Simvastatin, My period stopped happening, before this I was regular. I am only 35 years old.

Answer

Hi Worried,

There is potential for statin medications to change menstrual period duration and cause increased bleeding. I recommend discussing with your physician.

All the best,
