Are There Side Effects Of Steroid Injections Or Not?
I was injected a week ago because of steroid injections because my eyes were discharged and then did the steroid injection make menstruation late? Or what?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Steroids are one of the hormone-making materials that are naturally produced also in the body. Therefore, to some extent, steroid injections can indeed affect hormonal balance, including hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle. Frequently, if this steroid injection is only done occasionally, changes in the menstrual cycle that appears will not last long.
Not only because of the effects of steroid injections, late menstruation can also occur due to pregnancy, stress, fatigue, weight gain or decrease dramatically, exercise is too extreme, side effects of hormonal contraception, side effects of other drugs (for example anti-blood clotting or some kind of birth control pill) , to other diseases, such as ovarian cysts, hyperthyroidism, pituitary gland tumors, and so on.
Need to be clarified, how long exactly are you menstruating late? Have you ever had sex after your last menstrual period?
If your menstrual delays have only been less than 1-3 months, then you should not need to worry. If you have had sex after your last menstruation, it never hurts you to do a testpack to detect the possibility of you getting pregnant. If not, then you can try the following tips first so that menstruation runs more smoothly:
Exercise more diligently (1-2 days)
Calm the heart and mind, not excessive stress
Maintain ideal body weight
Expand eat fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
Do not carelessly take medication or supplements to facilitate menstruation
However, if your period still does not come up to more than 3 months, with test results that are always negative, it is recommended that you check directly with your doctor or obstetrician to further evaluate the possible causes (for example via ultrasound or hormonal examination), as well as finding right steps to overcome them.
Hope this helps ...
