Nasal spray side effect?

Hi, I was prescribed a nasal spray (budenase aq) by an ent doctor last month. This month when my period started there was only spotting and no flow for one and a half day. And it has finally started but still it is little amount as usually I have quite heavy flow the first 3 days. However whenever I pee blood clots would come out so I could tell that my period hasn't been flowing out. Is this happening because of using the spray? Because it has never happened before. I wanted to call the doctor but I have lost the prescription. What should I do?

NO....this medicine has NO EFFECTS on your periods. It is safe even in pregnancy and lactation. There is a Swedish study which studied its effects on 40000 pregnant women with Allergies and Asthma over a 20 year period on both mother and child and confirmed its safety!
