Patient: I was taking pravastatin 20 mg and yesterday I go a positive pregnancy test I’m so scared I’m 4 weeks pregnant
Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.I am confused as to why you are scared. If you do not want to keep the child, you shoul d talk to a Doctor about it. If you would like to keep it, then confirm with your Doctor if the pravastatin can be continued. Ideally, no medication should be taken in pregnancy as it can affect the baby.Hope you understand this. All the best.
