Menstruation and cold


The woman's menstrual cycle is the preparation of the body for fertilization and bearing the fetus. Most processes throw their strength into this preparation, thereby putting other systems of the body at risk. When an egg is not fertilized, menstruation comes, signaling the beginning of a new cycle. PMS (premenstrual syndrome) disturbs a large half of the female population, and can manifest a wide variety of symptoms due to weakened immunity. Sore throat before menstruation can be attributed to this syndrome. This problem is directly associated with reduced immunity and may be accompanied by other unpleasant sensations: headache, fever, pain in the chest, in the lower abdomen, etc.

The causes of various pains before menstruation can be due to many different factors. If you have a sore throat, then a developing catarrhal disease against a background of weak immunity can be the cause.

Causes of pain before critical days:

  1. Hormonal changes. After about the 20th day of the cycle, a hormonal jump occurs - a decline in progesterone production and an increase in estrogen. These changes in the hormonal background strongly influence the general condition of the body.
  2. Prostaglandin Enhancement. The cause of many unpleasant manifestations, such as: headache, pain in the back and abdomen, irritability or apathy.
  3. Disrupted neuropeptide metabolism. Violations concern the central nervous system and are in contact with neuroendocrine processes. The increase in this background, the level of prolactin and vasopressin explains the pain and sensitivity of the breast, as well as disorders associated with the intestines.
  4. Water balance disturbances. Occurs due to increased levels of melatonin and serotonin, which contribute to the accumulation of water and sodium in the body.

Pain during menstruation

Various pains and abnormalities in the work of the menstrual cycle are a common and quite explainable phenomenon of PMS. A dramatic change in hormonal levels causes stress and reduced immunity in the body. Unpleasant symptoms can be observed individually or in combination, depending on the individualities of the body. Separate neuropsychic, edematous, cephalgic and crisis forms of premenstrual pain.

  1. Neuropsychiatric disorders accompanied by depression, irritability, apathy and other mood swings.
  2. Swollen shape causes "pouring" and breast soreness, swelling of the extremities, flatulence and aggravation of olfactory and taste receptors.
  3. Cephalgic form characterized by severe headache, pain in the heart, nausea, vomiting, increased sweating and other symptoms. Angina, sore throat and fever above 37 - this can also be attributed to this form of premenstrual pain.
  4. Crisis form characterized by the occurrence of sudden crises in the form of high blood pressure, rapid breathing and heartbeat. In this form, the body is very susceptible to stress and various types of nervous disorders. General fatigue and the presence of infectious diseases increase the effect of crises attacks on the body.

Opinion of doctors

Sore throat before menstruation is justified by reduced immunity and the body's inability to resist infections. Menstruation greatly affects the overall resistance of the body and puts the main systems at risk. Various pains occur due to pathologies caused by the failure of hormonal levels. The factors affecting the general condition in the premenstrual period include:

  • lifestyle (sports or lack of it, fresh air, food),
  • taking contraceptives or other hormonal drugs,
  • bad habits (smoking, alcohol, drugs),
  • the presence of diseases (infectious or viral),
  • stresses
  • pregnancy.

If a woman has a sore throat, runny nose, cough or fever, then it means having a cold or tonsillitis because of the body’s inability to fight the respiratory pathogens. For the prevention of premenstrual complications, it is necessary to strengthen the immunity of healthy and healthy food, walks in the fresh air and intake of the missing vitamin.

Every woman who knows the characteristics of her body can experience premenstrual syndrome in its various symptomatic manifestations. To correct the production of hormones and eliminate the unpleasant symptoms of PMS, you should consult a doctor who is able to assess and eliminate the causes of their occurrence.

Does menstruation depend on the disease?

Menstruation for colds: what to expect?

Cyclic changes occurring in the reproductive system are provided by the work of sex hormones. A significant part of them produce the ovaries, but they do not operate separately from other organs, but obey the activity of the pituitary and hypothalamus. They also produce hormones.

Consequently, in order for the functional layer of the endometrium to be replaced in time, many chemical and biological reactions are necessary. Anything, especially a cold, can prevent them. After all, this is nothing more than the invasion of a viral infection.

Can a cold affect menstruation? Sometimes very noticeable. The microorganisms that cause it, multiply, leave in the tissues the results of their vital activity, that is, toxins. These substances interfere with natural processes, including the production of hormones. What the overall impact of the virus will be on the work of the reproductive system cannot be predicted. There are several scenarios.

Malaise and cycle

Considering everything said earlier, someone will doubt whether there can be periods with a cold. Of course, hormonal failure in this case is inevitable. The hypothalamus is very susceptible to infection, hence most of the problems with menstruation during illness. But this does not mean that the reproductive organs can rest in this cycle. Yet the impact of toxins and the stress they cause is not so great as to completely stop their work.

The next most important question is whether there can be a delay in menstruation with a cold. It is of this nature that failure more often disturbs the women who have had the infection. It is provoked by a deficiency of luteinizing hormone, caused by a lack of pituitary activity due to the fault of the hypothalamus. Ovulation is delayed at a later time.

The nature of menstruation with SARS

Monthly with a cold not only come later than expected, but also able to change their usual signs. Among the manifestations of anxiety can cause such:

  • Spotting at the beginning of critical days, as well as upon their completion. Hormonal failure affects the development of the endometrium. Some of its sites are ahead of this in others, which causes uneven delamination of tissues,
  • Duration Monthly with ARVI can go more than 7 days. In this case, the intensity of discharge is different, they are not abundant at all,
  • Small clots in the menstrual mucus and darkening. Increased temperature leads to an increase in blood viscosity, and hence its blood clotting. Biological fluid manages to do this before leaving the genital tract, which gives the discharge brown color,
  • Soreness Intoxication affects the nerve endings, which intensifies the sensations during uterine contractions.

What periods for colds also depend on how carefully a woman treats herself. If she suffers a disease on her feet, it is possible that the nature of menstruation will change more strongly due to even greater stress.

Monthly and accompanying colds can also prolong the presence of PMS. If normal with the onset of critical days, they weaken, then the disease leads to the fact that puffiness, drowsiness, persist longer.

Intoxication causes the presence of discomfort in the mammary glands. Because of it, nausea can occur and intestinal upset continues.

We recommend reading the article about the peculiarities of menstruation in case of tonsillitis. You will learn about the relationship between the cycle and the disease, the duration of menstruation, as well as the effect on tonsillitis on critical days.

Why do illness and critical days coincide?

Sometimes in the simultaneous arrival of a viral infection and menstruation are purely external causes. But a cold during menstruation is activated due to the fact that the characteristic feature of this part of the cycle is a decrease in immunity. Due to the hormonal difference that is accompanied by menstruation, metabolic processes slow down, the production of protective antibodies when the virus enters the body.

Similar reasons has a cold before menstruation. The amount of hormones is declining, the body is focused on preparing for the renewal of the reproductive system.

After illness

Banal viral infection does not always pass without a trace, not only poisons cells with toxins, but also causes psychological stress, as well as the need to take medication. The last two factors can also affect the normal change of hormonal composition.

Therefore, the period after the Orsi does not always go as well as in full health. They may have clots, the discharge is often meager due to insufficient growth of the endometrium. Abundant menstruation is also possible, since the nature of the hormonal disruption due to viral infection is difficult to predict.

A frequent sign is the delay of menstruation after ARVI. Ovulation due to illness happens later, which delays the achievement of endometrial readiness for replacement. But the wait should not be more than 7 days.

Prolonged absence means more serious than a viral infection, a problem that must be solved with a gynecologist. Due to late maturation of the egg, the delay of menstruation after a cold is also possible during pregnancy. So if they are not there on the 8th day, it’s worth a test.

Change in menstruation after illness

Having received an increased load in the most vulnerable period of the cycle, the reproductive and urinary systems may not recover immediately. This is manifested:

  • The appearance of a strange kind of discharge, different from healthy whiter in color and unpleasant smell,
  • By increasing the need to urinate,
  • Not leaving abdominal pains.

All these are signs of a complication of a viral infection, manifested by a lesion of the appendages of the uterus, bladder. So often a cold after menstruation is forcing to go to the clinic, special control over the work of the reproductive and urinary systems.

To avoid complications, it is not necessary to endure a disease on the legs that has coincided with menstruation. The inevitable while increasing the load on the body and provokes the spread of the virus to the genitals, the adherence to it of other infections. It is at this stage that the aggravation of candidiasis or herpes, as well as their first manifestation, is likely.

We advise you to read the article on the causes and treatment of long periods. You will learn about the normal duration of critical days, diseases affecting the length of menstruation, traditional and alternative medicine.

Menstruation and a cold that has caught up with them require a more careful attitude to themselves from a woman than ever. Ailment is a risk factor for gynecological health.

And if the menstruation coincides with a viral infection for several cycles in a row, this is an absolute reason to visit a gynecologist. Perhaps the body so signals the hidden problems of the immune and reproductive systems.

How does menstruation depend on the disease?

It is known that many factors can cause a delay and affect the normal flow of menstruation. In addition to pregnancy, it can be:

  • Stress,
  • Exercise,
  • Ovarian dysfunction,
  • Climate change
  • Overweight problems
  • Intoxication,
  • Bad heredity.

SARS and menstruation are also interrelated. Cyclic changes are directly related to the release of hormones and changes in the epidermal layer. Once in the body, the virus poisons us with toxins and prevents hormones from secreting and being replaced by the epidermis in time. Such delays may be associated, as with severe flu, a temperature of 39-39.5 degrees, and the common cold.

In such cases, gynecologists recommend first of all treating acute respiratory viral infections and then fixing the menstrual periods by contacting your doctor after an examination.

How does general weakness affect the cycle?

With a cold or severe manifestations of ARVI, hormonal disruption is inevitable, and, consequently, problems with menstruation. This is due to the impact on the hypothalamus, which reacts extremely negatively to an infection that has entered the body.

Menstruation with a cold can change their appearance, they mean the discharge itself, especially if you have a fever and a runny nose. Another problem for many women is the delay in menstruation after ARVI. Usually this is due to the fact that during the period of illness the necessary hormones were not released. If a woman has had an infection, then ovulation is delayed along with her period..

It is important that the delay period should not exceed more than a week. Otherwise, you need to do a pregnancy test or visit your gynecologist to be examined. Delay may indicate serious health problems, so do not be careless about this.

How is menstruation after an illness?

Despite the delays, the monthly will still begin. But, their appearance and the nature of the flow of the menstruation period may differ markedly from what it was before. A woman needs to be prepared for this and not be afraid of the typical behavior of her body.. We will list the main parameters that may change.

The first thing that scares women is a change in the nature of the discharge. After a cold, they can get smearing. Moreover, after suffering a severe form of influenza, spotting may become a new norm, which is associated with hormonal disruption in the body. This appearance of discharge is explained by the fact that the epidermis is not evenly exfoliated.

The second factor is the duration of menstruation. According to the norm, they should last no more than a week, however, due to the impact on the body of the disease, this period may increase significantly. Allocation occurs abundantly far from all, so their intensity may also differ from normal.

More painful process. If earlier the girl did not feel strong discomfort during menstruation, now, because of the toxins that affected the nerve endings, uterine contractions will be more tangible and painful.

Highlight color. In case of illness with a high temperature, dark brown discharge with mucus and clots is possible. Do not be afraid of this. This appearance of discharge due to the fact that due to the transferred high temperature, the blood coagulated inside the body, because of which the clots and acquired such an appearance.

It is important to note that changes in the menstrual cycle and its features directly depend on how the woman treats ARVI, is on the sick-list or continues to work. The transfer of the disease on the legs causes even more stress in the body, which in the future will negatively affect the work of the excretory system during menstruation.

Why do ARVI and menstruation occur simultaneously?

It sometimes happens that a cold catches up with a woman exactly at the time when her period has already begun. This is not surprising, because during menstruation, the immune system of the body is noticeably reduced and it becomes more vulnerable to viruses and external stimuli.

Protective antibodies are released much more slowly due to hormonal differences during menstruation, therefore, the virus that has entered the body does not feel any special resistance from the body. Other processes, such as metabolism, are also slowing down.

Not rarely, the disease occurs immediately before menstruation, which is associated with the same reasons: a decrease in immunity and the preparation of the body for renewal.

However, gynecologists warn women to exercise increased vigilance, because it is known that sore throat and runny nose may indicate that the woman became pregnant. In this case, the immunity also weakens, passing a malicious virus into the body without a fight.

What to look for after an illness?

The body can not immediately recover after suffering ailment. This is due not only to stress, but also the need to take medicines that are not always harmless to the body. Therefore, the monthly may take place not as usual.

But it is necessary to look at your feelings on the work of the urinary system. Having suffered such a serious blow, they may not work as before. You can notice this by:

  • The unpleasant smell of ordinary discharge,
  • Change the color of vaginal secretions, their texture,
  • Frequent urging to the toilet,
  • Not ending pain in the abdomen.

The disease could have a negative effect on the state of the uterus and urinary system. Therefore, after recovery, you should contact your clinic and be examined by a therapist. Women should not run their healthAfter all, such trifles can contribute to the development of serious pathologies, as well as interfere with the process of carrying a healthy child.

Last year 2 - every month before M. sore throat. Before pregnancy, she suffered from tonsillitis, but the therapist (now) looks at the throat and says that this is not tonsillitis: just a "little" sore throat. This “little” is perceived by me as an ORZ: for 2-3 days a sore throat, then a rhinitis appears. This is always before (.) Monthly. Although in addition to the sore throat, there are also other symptoms: headaches, abdominal distension, chest pain. I read somewhere that THIS is the real ICP that needs to be treated. With regard to the patient, the mountain in the period of menstruation is spoken differently: 1. that before the onset of menstruation the immunity weakens and as a result the throat starts to hurt, 2. hormonal changes before the menses swell the throat and nose mucosa, well, it gives such an "unpleasant" effect.

During menstruation, hormones play very strongly. The body of a girl (woman) during this period becomes weaker. Question: In the first 3-4 days of menstruation, do you have to strain your vocal cords? (Can you teach lectures, sing just for yourself, or do you have to shout or curse in elevated tones, or laugh out loud?) shout, laugh out loud .. and the like (what I have already listed) talk loudly for a long time, sing (especially to non-professionals). This is due to the fact that due to the hormonal difference (these days), the mucosa of the vocal cords (folds) changes its consistency (or quantity .. something like that) and the ligaments are then harder to work. During the menstrual period, the vocal cords become pink (in a normal, healthy state, they are gray-seen on a special apparatus). Also, in these days, laryngeal edema and redness of the mucous membrane of the throat can be observed .. and to all this - the immune system becomes weaker. It is necessary and strengthen the immune system. And stress also affects here - less stress! If possible, dear girls, try not to strain these days (in all plans .. of course - if possible) .. not to run on physical education - it will only bring harm, do not shout and do not sing .. save your body and voice. I've been a little away from the topic that was asked: "guest | 03/18/2011, 17:37:48 [1721016671] guest
Sometimes before menstruation, my throat starts to hurt, the body is weak. There is no temperature. Do you have it? "..
so, this topic is already 4 years old, just, suddenly someone else is concerned about this issue now. above, I painted everything. but, if it brings strong inconvenience, then you need to contact a doctor (a good doctor).
Sorry again if I left the topic here :)

The dependence of menstruation on the cold

During the whole menstrual cycle in the reproductive system of the woman, numerous transformations are observed under the influence of hormones. Most of them are produced by the ovaries, which function together with other internal organs. Sex hormones are subject to the influence of the hypothalamus, pituitary. In order for a timely rejection of the uterus epithelium to occur, the body will have to undergo many biological, chemical transformations. If one of the elements of a complex system fails, the entire circuit will fail. To provoke such a phenomenon can internal, external factors, including the common cold, the invasion of a viral infection.

In some cases, the disease significantly affects the monthly cycle, the nature of the discharge. After the penetration of a viral infection, pathogens begin to multiply in the woman’s body. In the tissues of the internal organs leave waste products. Nothing but toxins. They interfere with the normal functioning of body systems, violate the hormonal balance. What will be the result of such an impact is difficult to predict. There are several options for the development of events.

The effect of viral infection on critical days

The disease of ARVI entails hormonal failure. Extremely susceptible to viral infection of the hypothalamus. Hence the problems with menstruation. Hormones can delay the arrival of critical days or rush them. The presence of the disease does not mean that the reproductive organs can rest; there will be no menstruation in the current cycle. The effects of toxins, and the stress caused by them, are not so strong as to contribute to the disappearance of menstruation. Most likely, there will be a delay in menstruation.

Failure in the production of the hypothalamus entails a lack of a second hormone - the pituitary gland. Ovulation occurs approximately 7 days late. For the same period of time delayed regular menstruation. Deviations can occur in the other direction. When ovulation happens faster or will be absent, monthly begin prematurely. The situation is complicated by a decrease in immunity for colds, which can not but affect the work of the reproductive system, hormonal background.

The nature of menstruation for colds

Monthly with ARVI disease, diseases with viral infection depend on the severity of the course. If this is a slight weakness with a sore throat, runny nose, cough, the changes will be minor. Perhaps the monthly will come only 2-3 days later than expected. If there is a high temperature, a strong load on the internal organs, the nature of menstruation will change significantly.

  • Prolonged spotting. Hormonal failure affects the development of the endometrium on the walls of the uterus, as well as its subsequent rejection. The process is uneven. Spotting present before menstruation and some time after them.
  • Duration of critical days. With a cold, ARVI, menstruation can last more than usual - up to 7 days. Abundant secretions are rare. For diseases with a viral infection, menstrual periods are scarce. Duration can be reduced as well as increased.

  • Blood clots. The situation is understandable, normal from a physiological point of view. With increasing body temperature changes blood viscosity, increases its ability to clot. Discharges become brown before leaving the vagina. Brown clumps appear on the pad.
  • Pain sensations. The situation is controversial. On the one hand, the increased amount of toxins in a woman’s body due to acute respiratory viral infections, diseases with viral infection aggravate PMS. Intoxication affects the nerve endings, leading to painful sensations during the uterine contraction. On the other hand, along with the existing weakness, headache, fever, the symptoms of PMS simply merge with them, becoming invisible against the general background.

It cannot be said that everything happens according to the standard scheme. Many factors affect menstruation. In addition, the body of each woman is individual.

Factors affecting the nature of menstruation for colds

The nature of menstruation in the period of the disease affects the attitude of women to their health. If the disease is carried on the legs, the violations of the monthly cycle will be more significant. It has an impact and taking pills. If there is no fever or high fever in acute respiratory viral infections, treatment is limited to local effects: a throat spray, nasal drops. For diseases with viral infection, they take antiviral medications, high temperature pills, and immunostimulants. And then antibiotics. This all can not affect the monthly and the nature of menstrual flow.

Interesting fact: pregnancy can manifest itself as a sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, fever up to 37.2 degrees Celsius. Simply can be confused with the onset of a cold. If symptoms do not progress, a delay of critical days is present, it is necessary to conduct a pregnancy test.

It affects the regularity of the monthly cycle to a cold. Infection can complicate a situation and before that is not entirely favorable. In some cases, menstruation will have to cause special drugs. Do it after a visit to the gynecologist, with the exception of pregnancy. If the reason for the delay in menstruation was an imbalance of hormones.

Menstruation after a disease of infectious, viral origin

The common cold takes the vital forces of the body, reduces immunity, weakens the protective function. Toxins accumulate on the soil favorable for harmful microorganisms, the number of pathological microorganisms increases. Infection causes hormonal imbalance, disruption of the reproductive system, the menstrual cycle. After a mild cold, menstruation comes 7 days later, the cycle stretches to 35 days. With a longer delay menstruation will have to be called.

Due to the presence of an infection in the body, inflammation of the genital organs can occur. As a consequence of the disease - inflammation of the ovaries, appendages, uterus, cystitis. Lack of periods becomes obvious. Additional symptoms join the change in the nature of the discharge: pain in the lower abdomen, in the center or on the sides, nausea, fever and others. Depends on the disease.

Complicate the situation with the violation of the monthly cycle can stress and everyday everyday problems:

  • financial difficulties
  • problems at work
  • unfavorable psycho-emotional situation at home
  • strict dieting.

The weakened immune system of a woman allows new infections, fungi and bacteria to enter the body. Monthly after a cold may change due to the presence of new influencing factors. The presence of additional symptoms, discomfort should be alerted.

Thus, there is nothing strange in the fact that periods during a cold change. Critical days subsequently come at the wrong time. Do not worry if a sudden menstruation joins the viral illness. Anything can happen. The common cold and the monthly cycle are interconnected. The main thing is not to let everything take its course. Support the immune system, strengthen the body's defenses, replenish the supply of vitamins after a cold. In case of serious problems with the work of the reproductive system, immediately seek help from a specialist. In the next cycle, menstruation will come on time, pass as usual. A safe cold can cause dangerous health problems.

Monthly always with a cold pass for four months

My weight just does not decrease, but does not go away. ))) Well, I wrote that the extra 10 kg I stand on the spot after the birth) began to get sick with a cold — I hadn’t been sick before. Once a month for a week with a cold I go to bed - is this not a decrease in immunity? Immunogram not handed over.
The idea was true about the muscles of the pelvis, I also sinned about it, that after many years of hard training, the dance abruptly threw everything into pregnancy and during the feeding period, and the muscles weakened. But in the last three months I began to study again, the loads are not sick for me in my current state, but the nature of the monthly has not changed yet.

I can advise you on the site of the homeopath Nikitin. I take the necessary information from there without any consultation.
I immediately give a link to the book "Homeopathy for Moms", there he writes that GV needs a child, and your monthly nature, and the general condition, which includes the problem with weight, he describes as "atony".

Maybe this will help you.

I do not feed from 4 months, now the child is more than a year. A few days before menstruation, thrush appeared, and then, for no reason at all, cough, snot, and as a result, a disgusting mood.
HB does not affect, feed the baby as much as you can. Monthly - it is always a weakening of immunity, these days it is not recommended to go to the dentist, for example, to the gym, etc. and the like, any exercise, whether physical or psychological (stress), affects the body.
You will recover soon, believe me. Just everything overlaid. After giving birth, the body needs time to recover. And in such special days for women, you must especially take care of yourself.

Edited at 2014-02-12 10:58 pm (UTC)

GV has nothing to do with it.
The same thing always happened when hard-tense life-work. On ordinary days, the body is still held, in M ​​- everything, the seams, all colds cling at once.

It seems to me, here it is necessary to step back a little and see - maybe the load on the body is not coming from the side of the GW How much sleep, how to eat (in a relaxed atmosphere?), Can you relax, relax, how much do you get in the sun? Just answer yourself.
