I was sick recently - fevery, sore throat, achey (not nearly as bad as a flu, but enough to keep me home from work) - when I realized that the last time I was sick was also 3 days into my period. I checked through all my records and found that EVERY time I've gotten sick, it happend on Cycle Day 3-6 . Six times in the last 2.5 years I've been sick, and always during AF.
I'm SURE any doctor would say it's a coincidence, but I'm sure it's not. I just don't know where to begin my investigation.
Any advice or thoughts on the matter would be helpful.
Oh, and I think this began after I had my DS - who is now almost 4. Granted, he brings a lot of germs into our house, way more than I might normally have been subjected to... but the timing is the fascinating part to me. Oh, and this, I've been trying to conceive another baby for 1.5 years with no success. Wondering if something subtle is going on....

This is interesting, I have recently decided there was a connection between this myself. I haven't had anything as bad as fevers or achy, but have had cold symptoms once in a while, and every time has been at the same time as AF. I'd love to hear if someone knows of a reason for this!
