    Default Could being sick affect implantation?

    Hi girls,
    I am 4dpo and started coming down with a cold yesterday. I teach 6 six year olds and have been charting for three months, and came down with a cold every month at some point! My question is, could having a cold affect implantation since the body is under some stress and won't think it's a "good time"? I'm not super sick, just enough that it's uncomfortable and I don't feel 100%.
    Any ideas?

    I had a respiratory infection from mid-August to the beginning of October, treated with two courses of antibiotics (I broke out in hives with an allergic reaction to the first one) and a steroid puffer (all 'safe' for pregnancy, as my Dr. knew we were TTC when he prescribed them). I have never had such a hacking cough in all my life. I was absolutely certain that I would not be successful in that September cycle, we barely even BD'd I was feeling so crappy! September 24 I got the best surprise of my life! The body can do many things at once I suppose, I really have no explanation for it....although I was resting a lot and trying to eat especially healthy despite the illness.

    Best of luck to both of you!

    i have read that actually women often get a stuffy nose and sore throat in very early pregnancy. it's the body's way of lowering the immune system a little so the little embryo is not seen as an invader. so maybe your cold is a good sign that your body is helping a little baby get safely snuggled in! good luck!!!

    When I got pregnant with my son, I ended up with a Sinus Infection and Bronchitis the day we conceived - we only BD'd once that month because I was soooo sick. Unfortunately, the sickness held on the entire pregnancy - I think my last case of Bronchitis was in April, and he was born in May! I think it was actually good that I was sick, as morning sickness only affected me for a week. But to be completely honest, I was totally miserable during my pregnancy!

    I actually discussed this recently with my doctor. She said that it really doesn't make a difference unless of course you were sick with something really major or terminal, in the sense that your whole body is really struggling, not a cold or the flu or anything. I was concerned because I was just passed ovulating when my toddler came down with H1N1, she said even I caught that it should affect a pregnancy, if one resulted. I got the bfp that month, no problems

    I had a nasty cold during my IUI, and still got a BFP (who is now 15 months old!)

    I asked the RE about it, and he said that the cold itself shouldn't cause a problem, but to minimize medication as much as I could, including specifically ibuprofen, antihistamines, and decongestants.

    So, I barely took anything and apparently it worked out just fine. GL!
