Can being sick with a cold or the flu effect when you will have your period?



I have a very bad cold and/or the flu, and I am wondering if my cycle will be effected, i am due tomorrow, but it may not be regular yet, I started on Friday, July,13.

Yes, being sick may delay your period until you are feeling better, but it varies from person to person. If you are very sick, your body is busy trying to heal itself and will sometimes put having your period on the back burner until then, especially if you are dehydrated or on antibiotics and such. Also, you probably caught the cold in the first place since you are expecting your period, the week before your period is when you are most prone to catching colds and viruses.
I dont think so. Some of us start around out due date and others start right on the dot.

It has nothing to do with common things such as colds. Your cold may make your cramps bad. Because of all the coughing.
idkkkk i think it might be good for getting rid of it bc you poopie and stuff alot while you have it and it will help all the bad stuff leave your body.... but im not really sure if it effects it
memeeeeeeeeeeemyself
no!
Do you mean you started your period for the first time in July? If that is the case, you are right-your period won't be in its actual schedule for some time yet.

But yes-a lot of different things can affect your period and its cycle times, such as stress. And being sick is a very big stress on your body and can make your period either delay its start date or make it come sooner. I was actually sick with that flu that is going around and it made my period start a week early. It all depends on your body and how it reacts to such stresses.
If you are regular your cold should not effect period. And if you don't get it on that day just wait a couple of days. Because even though you are regular your periods will probably come on different days of the week
