Ilness during 2ww?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Is it even possible to conceive if you're sick during your 2ww? It sure doesn't feel like my body is doing anything conducive to conception this cycle...

 

I've had a fever, body aches, congestion for going on three days now. I'm 6dpo today.

 

I suppose the blessing in disguise is that I won't be shocked when my period starts. I'm going to be shocked if there's anything good going on in there.

 

Curious if anyone has experience with this? Specifically, fever during the 2ww....

Hey SweetMama! I've been looking into this issue too, because I feel like I'm fighting off a cold and I'm waiting to O. From what I've read, if illness is going to affect your cycle it would most likely do so when you're waiting to O (and it generally just delays O) but that if you are in the TWW you should be fine. I did read some things about white blood cells possibly interfering with fertilization, but not necessarily with implantation? So if you fell ill after ovulation (and hopefully after fertilization) then you could be fine. I read some personal anecdotes from women who were so sick that they were hospitalized during the TWW, and they ended up with BFPs and healthy babies. So don't lose hope, and take care of yourself!!

Thanks, kitteh. I appreciate your response. I've found similar stories...that illness may delay ovulation, but can't find much else on the topic.
