My wife stopped taking predisone about a month ago after taking it for 10 days. Today we found out we are expecting number two. Should we be concerned about effects to unborn fetus?
I wouldn't think you should have anything to be concerned with after using prednisone for only ten days a month ago. I would mention it to the OBGYN but I seriously doubt there is anything to be concerned over. Prednisone can be harmful to an unborn baby but you are talking about about short term use before the baby was even conceived. Ask the OBGYN to be sure but I wouldn't worry.
My BFF got pregnant because she took pred with bc pills and her and her husband had a healthy baby girl. As far as I know her Dr was aware and not concerned. Everyone is different and you certainly consult dr but not aware of any side effects. I had to take Toradol for rapid heart beat and off and in a couple other meds and so I understand your concerns.
Congrats to you and your wife;)
