Hi all,
I have been on prednisone for about 8 weeks now and was having a light period when i started it. Fast forward to now and i started it again this morning and it is the heaviest period i have ever had. I know my doctor said it could cause bruising but also being an anti inflammatory as well could this be why im bleeding more than normal? I am on 10 mg if that helps. I have also gained about 25 pounds as well

The weight gain is not unusual, but I'm not sure about the period - I didn't really notice any change there but who knows?
