    I missed my period for about 3 months because of a steroid shot my doctor gave me when I had inflamed vocal cords. I was prescribed a 10 day dose. On day 7 mu period finally came with a lot of cramps. In the last 7 days this drug has given me nausea, constipation and some stomach pain. Can't wait to start working on baby number 2

    It did help me to finally get my period again, but two days after I started taking it, and every night since then, even after I stopped using it, I have started shaking uncontrollably for up to twenty minutes. (It has been about two weeks since I stopped using it.)
