I am lost. I am never late, like EVER. AF was due today, no sign of her. No cramps, no bloating, nothing. I had to go to Urgent Care today because I have the flu and pneumonia, and they did a urine pregnancy test because I had to have a chest x-ray. It was obviously negative. My boobs hurt, and my gums were bleeding like crazy when I flossed tonight. WHAT is going on?? Why on EARTH isn't AF here if I'm not pregnant?? I have literally never been late, my cycles are so regular. And now I keep having to remind myself that pregnancy is impossible, even though AF is now late and I'm having a couple symptoms.
Yes very much so. Having the flu and pneumonia is very hard on your body. It can halt your cycle. This has happen to me more then once. Any major change to your body messes with your hormones. Stress is a big one too. If I'm under a lot of stress I ovulate late. Are you feeling better? I hope the doctors gave you something to help you get a good nights rest.
We're all a little crazy. It may take a few day's for AF to show especially with all the medication you're on. Just be prepared because it could start with out warning. All those medications could mask normal AF signs. I would wear a light panty liner for the next few days. Hope you're feeling better soon. Something must be going around because I had a horrible migraine for 3 days that caused me to vomit. Unfortunately, I had to take some heavy duty medication to sop it. I was worried it would cause delayed ovulation (looks like it did for a day or two). So what I did was try to stay as relaxed as possible, drink lots of fluid, and get as much sleep as I could. Been sick sucks.
Yeah, it's been bad. I haven't even been able to get out of bed because one of the lovely things that come with flu and pneumonia is a nasty headache caused by the fever. Apparently it's a symptom of both flu and pneumonia. So I've had a headache that makes it hurt just to look around for days. Plus of course the lovely fever, chills and aches.
I definitely can't wait to get over this nastiness. I can't remember the last time I was so sick
