Entocort and periods?

I'm currently taking 6mg entocort but since i've started the meds I've been getting very frequent periods 2 a month or every 14 days? Is this normal? Has anyone got this problem before?

My Support Groups:
irregular menstrual periods are a common side effect of steroids such as entocort. However you should make an appointment with your gynecologist to discuss and rule out any other health issues. Are you also on birth control?

I never had multiple ones in a month, but steroids did make me super hormonal (which i never used to be during my period) and also caused me to skip periods as well as have extra heavy flows.
