I have personally found that it does. And the last time I had one my doctor said it would as I mentioned I'm trying to get pregnant. And sure enough I got my period a week early, don't think I ovulated, and it was a very light period. Its annoying, however, that doctors don't inform you of all the side effects because I also experienced mood swings and insomnia after the last one....

Can epidural shots cause hair loss?

It definitely can! A year and a half ago I had 3 intramuscular steroid injections in my lower back and a couple months later my hair started falling out by the handfuls. It quit just as fast as it started but it did last several months. Then in January my second doctor told me he wanted to try a series of 3 epidurals. I told him I was concerned about hair loss. He thought it would not affect it since the steroid would be staying in the spinal canal. Well, guess what?? Here it is June and my hair has been falling out starting the end of April and is continuing to fall out by the handfulls now. Hopefully it will stop soon. My dermatologist told me this is definitely a side effect to steroid injections and about the time you start freaking out about it because your hair is getting so thin, it seems to suddenly stop. Keep your fingers crossed!! I know I will never have another steroid injection again!
