Steroids + scared

I was prescribed oral steroids today, as I had anaphylaxis due to food allergy. I read the side effects, and they sound terrifying: weight gain, acne, mood swings, suicidal thoughts, menstrual issues, fertility problems, and the biggest one for me, possible yeast infections. I just got over a horrible bout with multiple yeast infections, and I'm considering not taking them.

So, does anyone here have experience with steroids? Did they cause the aforementioned symptoms? What's the likelyhood of a yeast infection, and how can I insure I don't get one via the steroids?
