arthritis and pregnancy

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has had problems conceiving with having arthritis? I was put on predisone since some other drugs I was taking wasn't safe for pregnancy. Now since the predisone my af is out-of-wack making it difficult to conceive. Just wondering if anyone had some insight on the matter. Thanks.

I'm on prednisone and have arthritis also. My af is also out of whack but to be honest, I never connected the two because I just came off BCP 3 months ago and thought it was because of that. My first cycle was 54 days and now I'm on day 32 of the 2nd cycle. I think I will give up ttc soon though and go back on my meds.

Dee,Thanks for your response. I have been trying for 18 mos and am on clomid now hoping to speed things along. Some days I wish I could take the meds until I knew I was preg but just don't want to take that chance. It's been a long haul but will be worth it in the end! Especially since I heard arthritis goes in to remisson during pregnancy!!
