There was a question earlier about someone who was taking prednisone & ttc. I never saw an answer posted. Anyone know what effect prednisone has? I was taking it at the beginning of this cycle for 9 days for my asthma. I didn't think it had any effect on fertility. My temps did bounce up and down quite a bit during that time. The nurse at my docs office thought that might have been a result of the prednisone.

Found your question from 11 months ago as I have a similar question now. A Bradley Instructor told me to get off Advair because steroids of any kind can be absorbed through the skin. I don't enjoy the inhaler and reduced it from 250 to 150/50, but then I went off it entirely thinking I should really be "clean" since there are so many unexplained health problems nowadays with children. I'm not struggling to breathe but I don't feel healthy either without it. I just want to conceive and not put more chemicals into the mix! Have you (or anyone else) found any meaningful feedback on TTC with asthma/allergies? Thanks. -pea
