Every month, for about 2 days when I ovulate I feel extremely ill - Very nauseous and tired. Basically I feel like I'm pregnant. This is a new phenomenon since I've had my son.

What's this crazy hormone induced flu all about?

I have never been pregnant, but I went through a long period when I'd have flu-like symptoms around the time I ovulated. I'd get a sore throat, feel achy and feverish and sometimes nauseated.

At the time I assumed it was due to my body being overstressed. I did notice that these changed and decreased when I improved my nutrition and did other things to lessen my problematic PMS.

I hope someone has some more useful info for you!

That also happens to me sometimes, though it seemed like it was more frequent the first several cycles after PPAF, which sounds like about where you're at, no? I don't know why that would be exactly, but it has let up for me since. Sorry, I know it's really not that fun.

This has been happening to me for over two yrs since I had my youngest child. I associate it with perimenopause. My cycle symptoms have changed a lot in the past 2 yrs. I had a hard time figuring it out, but all added together, unfortunately, I think I am in perimenopause.

Mags, may I ask how old you are and why you attribute this to perimenopause? I experience similar o symptoms, inlcuding pain and excessive ewcm, since my second child was born almost 19 months ago. I was planning to ask my ob to check for a cyst ( I've had one burst that I didn't even know existed). Thanks

I'm thinking cysts. Go see a doc. Check this link:

I never had these type of symptoms before. I'm in my mid-30's. My mom went through menopause pretty early on. I don't think it's cysts, b/c I was checked for cysts five yrs ago when I went through infertility problems and none were found.

I never used to feel badly when I Od, but oh my after DD I went through some really rough cycles. I had horrible headaches, nauseated and awful O cramps. I basically felt like sh**. Now that DD is almost 2 my cycle is back to pretty much normal, which is funny because I started AF at 9 weeks PP(even with EBF, ugh), but it took about 1.5 years for me to feel normal again. I had some pretty major hormonal issues, I think because I did start AF so early PP that combined with BF hormones just made my body really confused. Of course now that I am back to "normal" I wouldn't mind getting pg again, LOL. Then it would all start again.

I also feel like crap during O it's part of the way that I have a clue I'm about to O. I feel like AF in coming NOW for about 2ish days then I feel fine for 10ish days and about 2 days before AF I turn into a mess.

I think your normal, well, on the crappy side of normal with me at least

p.s. I'm 24 and never been PG

I'm crunchy... Like a Dorito.

I got my first PP Af early too, while EBF. I think around 12 weeks or so. I never connected that to my symptoms. I had to reschedule my obgyn appt to next month, but I'll ask about the cysts anyway. Thanks everyone!

I am on day 10 in my cycle ( as far as I know) and just today I noticed my lower back has been achy I've been crampy and now late afternoon I am feeling all over achy, I almost feel as if I am getting the flu?

I have never felt this before ever. I'm going now to go look at the cyst link....
