I am taking prednisone 20 mg/day and I am currently 11 weeks 4 days, I am trying to figure out when would be the best time to stop. I know that after the placenta takes over, immune issues are not supposed to be as problematic - when do you consider that to be in your patients?

I cant tell you when to stop your prednisone as I dont know your case, but the placenta is fully implanted by 12 weeks of pregancy.
