In brief: Depends

Depends upon formulation, dose and route of administration.
Oral is 1-2 days, with higher doses taking slightly longer. Iintramuscular shots (particularly depot form) can take much longer depending on which steroid you've received and the dose. Your doctor should be able to tell you.

In brief: Steroids

Depends on the steroid you used.
Typically it is Prednisone or methylprednisolone. Prednisone is out of the system in 18-36 hours. Methylprednisolone in pretty much the same time course.
