Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Moreover, simvastatin significantly decreased secretion of progesterone from the placental explants (P < 0.01).

Now, lovastatin and simvastatin , which strongly inhibited sterol synthesis, significantly attenuated the secretion of progesterone.
So under conditions in which the cholesterol pools were decreased, lovastatin and simvastatin attenuated the progesterone secretion, whereas pravastatin did not.

Simvastatin , a potent inhibitor of the key enzyme controlling de novo cholesterol synthesis, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase, completely inhibited (P < 0.05) progesterone production by granulosa cells and progesterone and androstenedione production by thecal cells.
