Is it normal to have flu symptoms right before ovulation? I'm feverish, stuffy, runny nose, fatigue, and body aches. It is recurring every month.

In brief: It is possible

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) affects most menstruating women to some degree, and can include many different symptoms.
PMS symptoms can appear any time in the two weeks prior to menstruation. Some symptoms common to both the flu and PMS include: joint and muscle pain, fatigue and weakness, headaches, chills, irritability and anxiety. If symptoms recur every month, it is most likely due to PMS.
