There is another phase called perimenopause, and this precedes menopause by up to 5 or more years. During this phase you can skip periods for up to a few months, then get one again.

I wish prednisone affected my periods by making them go away! I'm jealous.

Oh, there are some blood tests that doctors can run to help answer your question. It could be all three, but I would say the most likely causes would be start of menopause or the prednisone if it's affected you in this way before. (I"m assuming you haven't had any of the strong treatments for lupus recently that can cause ovaries to stop functioning).
