Viral Sore Throat Contagious Period
1 to 2 weeks: A viral pharyngitis lasts an average of one to two weeks, I believe the virus may be viable during that time and therefore, you should not cough or get close to children or adults who are healthy. A pediatrician or an infectious disease specialist are the 2 specialties in medicine that would be most knowledgeable to answer this type of question. ...Read more
Cheer up: You were probably most contagious just before you got sick, so the virus could spread before you went to bed. If you have a fever, wait until it's normal for 24 hours. Otherwise, when you feel better your body has won, made antibodies, and you shouldn't be able to pass it on. There is no firm rule since lots of viruses cause sore throats. ...Read more

31 F - my scalp is feeling sore and tender. I am currently on my period and have recently had a sore throat and cough?
Unrelated: These symptoms appear to be independent of each other. Have someone check your scalp skin to see if there is any inflammation or infection. You seem to have an upper respiratory viral infection but as long as you aren't febrile or producing a lot of discolored sputum, it should resolve without any specific treatment except gargling, lozenges and robitussin (guaifenesin) cough syrup. ...Read more
I have a cold. I'm coughing and I have a sore throat. Could that be the reason why I'm really tired? Also my period is 3 days away.
Fatigue: Yes. Any viral illness has the potential to make you feel tired, along with dozens of other possibilities, not the least of which is depression. This is the time of year that people are getting sick of winter (although perhaps not in houston) and having seasonal depression. If this does not clear up when your cold ends, see a doctor. Best. ...Read more
I have my period now after 3 mos, but im having fever, pain on my upper and lower back. I'm having also sore throat. Is symptom related to my period?
Coincidental: Does not sound like these symptoms are anything that would be related to your period. You could have a urinary tract infection, but that too would be independent of you being on your period. Since you have fever, i'd get tested for influenza and possibly for UTI - see your doc. ...Read more

For the past 3-4 months, I've gotten cold like symptoms 2-3 days before my period (sore throat, congestion, fatigue, aches) why does this happen?
Right before your cycle begins your Progesterone (pro) levels drop, this drop in pro creates a state of relative excess of estrogen (e2). High e2 levels stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system (pns) excess pns stimulation causes the symptoms of sore throat, congestion....
You may benefit from getting your pro levels and e2 levels checked to see if they are imbalanced. ...Read more

Every month, a couple of days before my period I get a sore throat, runny nose/sneezing & coughing. I feel really sick. What could this be from?
High odds previous: Emotional experiences, understandings, events associated with being a women, having periods, sexual issues, etc., from earlier times in life. Primary controls of our behavior (s) are always determined by past history/experiences, beliefs & Déjà vu anticipation/preparation for these, or similar events, happening again. Ask yourself what would make sense of such feelings & you will be close. ...Read more

Can sore throat, metal taste be preg symptoms? LMP 19/10, had sex 01/11 & 09/11 unprotected. Light period pain/backache on/off. Twinges in ovary.
No: No;however unprotected sexual intercourse will definitely lead to pregnancy. Here's an idea: go shopping with sexual partner and pick up a variety of condoms PLUS spermicidal jelly, foam, inserts, or sponge. Additionally, it is probably time to see a GYN for a pelvic exam and definitive oral contraceptive pills. ...Read more

Have the contraceptive implant almost month ago, had my period last 2 days ago and my head hurts so bad, neck, have sore throat and flu. What should I do?
I'm have a cold can this delay my period I had had the a small cold, at least I think for like the past two weeks. It started with some white spots on my tongue then I lost my voice and then I had a sore throat and my voice is back and I have a cough. So
If I am very sick (102.1 fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, slight body aches) can that delay my period at all?
Possibly: Yes there are reports that have shown that a fever can delay ovulation and then subsequently delay menstrual bleeds that occur after a delayed ovulation. So you might not be that regular this month. But this does not occur in everyone the same way. Your fever might not have any effect on your menstrual period. ...Read more
