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