Corticosteroids caused my amenorrhea. I am on them constantly and they mess up my hormones. I found taking an herb called Vitex from a cactus plant for 3 months caused my periods to come back and be regular. I took it for the full 3 months and then I don't have to take it again until I am back on corticosteroids and suffer again.
