I started sneezing badly on Tues afternoon and the cold got worse Wed, Thurs and today. Hoped I would feel better today but still with sinus, feeling weak and night sweats.
My AF is due Sunday or Monday when I make the call to the clinic to start the cycle. So far DH is fine. Have things to do tomorrow but have been home mending myself. Docs said not to take antibiotics just stick to panadol and Fess natural nasal spray. Antibiotics won't help (maybe he was afraid to give them because I told him about IVF) even though the IVF nurse said I could if recommended but to take antibiotics for woman in early pregnancy.
Should I be concerned this could affect egg quality and ruin the cycle or is it to early to affect it as we haven't started the cycle yet? So worried.

I recently had a really bad case of the flu and an ear infection that required antibiotics while I was stimming, there was absolutely no impact on my results with 17 mature eggs at EPU. My FS said that antibiotics may even help the cycle.

ive had a bad cold pre EPU and the only thing its made me do is rest more. its never changed my protocal. as with aloe vera, antibiotics could help.
fingers crossed for u

Thanks for your replies i'm not as concerned now but NEWS...AF arrived a couple of hours ago. It's 3 days earlier than expected. In a way it's a good thing because the day I thought EPU could be my FS was leaving to a conference for a week or two so we might just get him in time to do it.
Left a message for my FS (still waiting on questions to be answered) and the nurse. I will double check with them to make sure all will be ok and if I should force doc for antibiotics now.

in 2008 JUST before my stim cycle that resulted in my BFP and my now 2 year old I had swine flu lol so I dont think it matters- I was concerned too at the time! Good luck!

Antibiotics won't help you with the cold. They only work on bacteria and the cold is caused by a virus. Although both types of "bug" are microscopic and can make you ill, they're completely unrelated beasts. Using fly spray on a cold won't work for exactly the same reason.
Although as aloe vera mentioned antibiotics may help with the IVF implantation (as per the Colorado protocol) that means you should be asking your FS, not your GP, for the prescription.
Just make sure you're eating enough goodies to both feed your body while it's fighting the infection and also to feed the eggs with all the goodies it wants to collect.
