Can I use a statin if I am pregnant?

Statins are not to be used during pregnancy they may cause damage to the fetus or by nursing mothers. If you are a woman of childbearing age, you should only use statins if you definitely do not plan to become pregnant. The general rule in medicine today is that only in situations of extremely high blood cholesterol that do not respond to nondrug treatments like diet should statins be given to women of childbearing age.
