IVF and Dexamethasone Question
Hi ladies, I'm currently in my first IVF cycle and I'm curious about dexamethasone. I'm currently taking it to aid implantation (2 doses left). I'm about 12DPO, 10 days post embryo transfer.

What I'm curious about: did dexamethasone ever delay anyone's period? Right now I'm past the point where I would be spotting on a normal cycle. The doctor has me on oral progesterone as well; however, oral progesterone has never delayed my period in the past. I'm just curious if dexamethasone could be the cause of my lack of spotting so I don't get my hopes up too high just in case.

Of course I've googled dexamethasone and a side effect could be absent periods. But, I'm on a low dose (0.5 mg) and I was curious if anyone had specific experience taking it alongside IVF.

Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks!
