Prolonged reaction to steroids
Posted by: Christa Allen

I was on an extended steroid treatment (Celestone injections) during my pregnancy due to 2 previous pre-term births. I delivered at 38 weeks to a very healthy little girl. During the steriod treatment, my face rounded out. It has been almost 9 months since my daughter's birth, I have returned to my pre-pregnancy weight. I'm running 3 miles/day but still my face has not returned to its normal look. Is there any hope of getting my face back? What can I do?

Here is one more reason not to use chemical structures in the human body which are foreign to it. The body makes its own steroids and we have these structures available to us through compounding pharmacies. If the roundness of your face has not disappeared after nine months, it is not likely to disappear. You may want to look into what plastic surgery has to offer.
