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 wondering myself if being on steriods can make periods heavier.???

I have been experiencing heavy periods for a while.

I am infact having a operation on the 20th April... D&C and coil to see if it helps. While I am having that done they are also going to check the womb to make sure nothing else is causing the problem, but I have wondered if being on steriods can be a cause.

I have been told that the steroids can make your periods crazy. either heavy, irregular or gone all together. I know mine totally disappeared with the Pred.
