I can't have kids and am not on birth control. I normally have my period on or next day 11th. Still no period, before I started Promacta had very heavy and painful periods. Regular doctor was going to put me on birth control and Hemo say it would not be necessary if I can't have kids, the Promacta should help with the bleeding.
Diagnosed Jan 10, 2008. Rituxan treatment in May 2009. Treated with Prednisone off and on until 08/23/17 - 12.5mg Promacta as of 10/22/17
Thank you received: 39
Dex is a steroid -
"Both prednisone and dexamethasone are types of corticosteroids, drugs based on a naturally occurring hormone produced by the adrenal glands involved in the control of inflammation, stress response, metabolism, behavior, electrolyte balance and more"
I very well could be the reason for the late period
