Can one cortizone shot delay period at all?
An_256031 posted:
I had an allergic reaction on February 20th and had a cortizone shot to get rid of the bumps all over my body. I was supposed to have my period around the 10th or 11th of March. It's the 14th and all that has happened is a little brown discharge. My bf has only put it in and taken his thing back out real quick like 5 times on vday which was a couple days after my last period. He had on a spermicidal condom and didn't ejeculate at all. It went in and came out 5 different times while messing around. Could the cortizone shot be the reason for late period and a little brown spotting? Or could I be pregnant? I highly doubt I'm pregnant but getting worried it's something serious.
