Hello Friend,
There is this thing going around my head what if one is thinking to conceive without stopping steroids or already is pregnant but doesn't want to stop consuming steroids, then is it harmful to her?

No, it is not safe yet people consider it safe, it may be required during pregnancy in certain medical conditions, however, their use should be carefully monitored by your healthcare professional. The pros and cons of steroid consumption during pregnancy should be carefully considered, as some steroids may have adverse effects on the developing fetus.

For example, high doses of steroids during pregnancy have been associated with the following:

  • increased risk of preterm birth

  • low birth weight

  • developmental delays in children.

    Some steroids may also enhance the risk of birth defects, particularly when used during the first trimester. It's essential for pregnant ladies to discuss any concerns or questions about medication use during pregnancy with their doctor. They can assist to assess the risks and benefits of specific medications and make recommendations based on the individual's medical history and current health status.

There are several types of research that say that women who consume steroids give birth to babies with adrenal suppression. It affects the fetus's development, disturbs the menstrual cycle, and also interrupts the chances of conceiving later. Even cases of cervical cancer may arise, which has a serious impact on one's overall ability to achieve pregnancy and plan for the future. Moreover, the unbalanced sex hormone levels in the growing fetus of pregnant women using steroids are linked to the most frequent birth abnormalities from steroids.

Treatment with steroids between 22 and 35 weeks pregnant is likely to be safe and beneficial for your baby. Taking an oral corticosteroid like prednisone or prednisolone long-term during pregnancy has been associated with an increased chance for preterm delivery birth before week 37 and/or low birth weight weighing less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces 2500 grams at birth.
