Drywall bathroom ceiling


We have an old lathe and plaster house and I finally gave up on the cracks in the ceiling and drywalled it. Due to other work I won't be taping, mudding and priming for a few weeks. Should I be worried about humidity and the drywall? And if that is a problem, should i prime everything and then tape and mud later?

Regular drywall. The shower is fully enclosed, basically another room almost.

Tape and coat as normal.

However: Make sure that you use a Mildew Resistant Primer and paint.

Make sure that you also have the proper ventilation (Exhaust fan) installed too.

Good Luck.
