I have not had a period in like 4 months and have really no idea why but have been okay with it. I went through a spell several months ago where I had a super heavy period for over a month....it was terrible. So, since then, I would rather have no period at all then to have that happen again. Anyhow, I started my period like 2 days ago and started a flare like 5 days ago so I am thinking that they may be linked. I have searched online and it appears that some people even do things to control their period b/c it creates a flare with chrones but I did not find anything on UC.
Has anyone else experienced a flare linked with their period? If so, do you find that once your period stops then the flare goes away or do you normally have to take prednisone to get it under control? It does seems that the heavier my period gets the more I bleed from my butt too. I am down to 5mg of prednisone and trying to get off for the past 1 1/2 yrs so wondering if I should stick it out or if I am just dreaming.
