Has anyone not gotten there period due to the predisone or any other medications? I had a mirena Iud in for two years and I would spot every month. I had to have it pulled in Jan and Im no on anything else and have not got my period yet havent even had any symtoms.

Hey jessierose...I was put on high doses of prednisone in January and have yet to have a period! I asked the same question and the answers I got was it was from prednisone and also Lupus can cause you to be irregular. That it wasnt anything to worry about and to be thankful I didnt have a period while it lasted. I am sure someone else will come along and give a more detailed reason why...but from what I have been told its normal!

Thank you for answering me. How much prednisone are you on? I have really bad endo so my periods are very heavy and painful. I have been on higher doses of pred and when I had the IUD I would spot. Could OCP have any interaction with pred?

Right now I am on 30 mg. I was on 80 mg for a month and half. Before the 80 mg I had 3 IVs' of Solu-Medrol of 1000 mg each. Here is a link with all the possible drug reactions that prednisone can cause

Hope this Helps! The list is rather long! How much prednisone are you currently taking?

It can be from the prednisone as well as the b/c you were on. Simple being you are used to the b/c but stopped it. There of your body has to re adjust. So it can be from any of the meds and lupus. If your worried, check wif your doc :)

Every time I start, stop or change the dose of pred I have a period delayed or start early.

I can relate. Im not diagnosed yet but suspected of lupus. Not on any meds as of yet either. See a rheumy thursday. My periods have been different since I had my son back in june of 2007. They still lasted the same amount of days as before him but were normal the first two days with pain, amount etc. but the last 4 i had barely any pain and spotted. These last 2 have been really messed up and its also when I got my positive anas back so im assuming its lupus. They lasted for 8 days spotting only once on the last 2 of the 8 days. It even went away for 24 hours then came back. Does anyone else have this problem? Also its every 30 days for my cycle which is the same as before DJ but sometimes Ill be 32 days. Its so annoying and Im tired or having to buy new panties! lol Lupus is so aggrivating sometimes ugh.
