I'm about a week late. I know I'm not prego (my poor husband). Is it most likely from the prednisone? I've never had this happen before but I have never been on a dose this high. I have only been taking it for a week.

It could be. But maybe you should take a test just in case? Unless it's been like a year, lol

Prednisone has also messed up my cycles in the past...I remember I was three weeks late last summer when I was on the highest dose.

Weird but Prednisone never messed with my period. I just missed mine in March and was hoping it was from the Humira and Entocort. It wasn't. I was pregnant.

My periods actually started back up after something like a year of not having them when I started the Pred. Actually, I did have a couple last year, but only one of them was "normal". The other one(s) were really light, with almost no red in them at all.

Apparently, dairy doesn't agree with me
