Hello everyone ,

Has any one noticed having abnormal menstrual periods means irregular or even more than 40 days along with lupus ?

Hi aashi,
Welcome to the forum.  Irregular periods are common with Lupus, and also if you're taking Prednisone.  Might be a good idea to check with your doctor to make sure you're not pregnant.

HI, I wasn't officially diagnosed with lupus until in my early 50s but I had a later start to menses and very irregular periods my intire menstrating life..thankfully I had 3 biological children when in my early 20s without problems.  I always thought the odd periods were an early clue to my strange health problems. A couple times I went a year without a period without being pregnant. I did get pregnant during this time and back then they could never figure my due dates because I may have missed 3 - 4 periods when I was only 1 mo. pregnant. It's an odd disease isn't it? Deb

I get my period twice a month just recently treated for MCTD but have had another autoimmune disease for 20 years. My period comes every 19-26 days.
