Answer:

Hello
Mrs. Gupta
One thing is that steroids can make side effects to you and also it can be for your child. So you have to stop is in decreasing mode.
Ayurveda medicines which made from herbs are safe in pregnancy and even if you take it in regular bases. So please you can consult nearest doctor of Ayurveda for the same or if you wish you can also take such remedies that I am giving you here.

1. Mahamajisthadi Ghanvati 2 tabs twice a day
2. kishor guggulu 2 tabs twice a day
3. Vasadi Ghanvati 2 tabs twice a day

You have to take these Ayurveda medicines with the medication like steroids you are taking recently.. After such days you can decrease the dosage of steroids and after a long you can free from the problem permanently.
Wish you healthy pregnancy
