Lupus & Menstrual Cycles

Hello, my name is Kat and I have been diagnosed with Lupus since I was 12 years old. I have always had issues with my monthly as a result of the Lupus; usually it is very heavy and the PMS is unbearable. However, this past month, I completely missed my period and I have no other reasoning besides stress and the Lupus. After doing some research, I have read that it depends on the person.
Does anyone else have this problem and how do you handle it (i.e. medication, not stressing, etc.)?
Thank you!

Just reading this post with interest. I have only been diagnosed with SLE recently. Im currently on 20mg Prednisolone and in the last week have been put on 50mg of Azathioprine. My period started 2 days ago and its soooo heavy!!! I'm also more "bloated" then usual. Is this all down to the steroids?
