Can cortisone injections cause spotting?

I was wondering whether or not anyone has every had a cortisone injection and experienced menstrual spotting from it? It's just that I wanted to rule out the chance that the reason I'm spotting might be because I have had the injection and not because I am having a miscarriage. If anyone has ever experienced this before please let me know as I am curious?
Thanks!

Yes, I had a cortisone injection in my ankle a week ago, and I had a period of flushing and depression. Then yesterday I started spotting and now bleeding, and I am about 8 years, postmenopausal. I looked upt eh side effects on Google and found out that pancreatitis, uterine bleeding and anaphylactic shock are rare side effects. I already knew that depression, flushing and heart palpitations were possible side effects from previous injections.
