In brief: Not clear
It is not listed as a contraindication to the medicine but recent research shows a dose related reduction in bone mineral density and dose related increases in fractures with inhaled steroids.
You should talk with your doctor. If you take the nasal version for allergies, there are other alternatives. If you take it for asthma you should have a risk/benefit conversation with your doctor.
