Do taking inhaled asthma steroids increase your likelihood for conceiving or pregnancy?

In brief: No

Very little of the inhaled steroid dose gets absorbed, so there is little to no effect on the rest of the body.
I would not expect any effect on fertility, and I have never seen any studies or other evidence that there is any effect.
