29 year old daughter got steroid shot for sinusitis, currently using Flonase spray. Could one shot and the daily steroid use cause an 8 lb wt gain?

Steroids

Sinusitis
The shot will make her gain weight, not the flonase. She should see an allergist and manage her sinuses better to avoid side effects from systemic steroids. She should decline receive them from now on.

Can you die from steroid use?

Steroids

Steroid_abuse
Yes though it is not common. One complication of steroids is ulcer disease which can cause complications leading to death as an example. If you really need steroids as in Addison's disease and they are suddenly discontinued, serious effects may also occur.

Does steroid use affect the penis?

Long term yes!

Erectile_dysfunction
There are no immediate issues with an injection or brief course of steroids, but long term use will suppress testosterone production, enhance metabolic syndrome, which in and of itself, can cause ED.

What are pros and cons of steroid use?

A no-brainer.

Steroid_abuse
Cons: high blood pressure, damage to the immune system, high cholesterol, diabetes, breast enlargement (gynecomastia), bad acne, liver damage, obnoxiously aggressive behavior, stretch marks, cardiac arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, heart attacks, sudden cardiac death...and oh, yes, impotence. Not to mention that it will get you banned from competition permanently. Pros: I can't think of any.

Dr. Collin Smikle answered:

Is infertility from steroid use permanent?

STeroid

Steroids
It depends if you are describing male infertility with a low sperm count after steroid use or female infertility with ovulating. With the former, if taken for only a short period of time, it may be reversible. IF for a long time, the testicles may not recover. For women, steroids may not have the same effect and stopping it will often allow things to return to normal.
