We are not trying to have another baby at this point, but as soon as I started taking pred, my periods completely stopped. They told me that pred doesn't cause that, but when I tapered off, voila-my cycles came back. I don't remember how low a dose I was on before they came back. However, I have been off the pred for almost a year now, and my cycles are JUST now getting back to normal. I am not convinced I have even been ovulating this entire past year.
I do know that I have always been extremely fertile, and since the pred, we have been careful, but not as careful as we should have been at times, and have never had a problem with surprise pregnancies, like in the past. Maybe it is age, but I feel like the pred really screwed things up.
Honestly, based soley on what I know for myself, I would not be surprised if even a low dose of pred could be the root of the problem. I am praying you can get this ironed out and get that baby you are hoping for. And Steph, I pray it happens for you as well. Hugs to you both.
