I'm in my early 30s and just starting to think about starting a family. I have been taking 40mg of atorvastatin for the past 6 years due to FH. I have spoken to various medical professionals and the GP has advised I remain on the statins until I get pregnant rather than come off them straight away. He advised the benefits out weigh the low risk. My cholesterol was 10.1 before starting statins but is now down to 5.7. I have done a bit of searching online but there seems to be little info on this subject. Except from a few links to early birth defects. I wondered if anyone had any more info or experience with this?
