JOHART - September 18

I have recurrent cold symptoms during my period. I have noticed the symptoms for about a year but for the last six months they have happened every month around the third day of my period. Symptoms include aching joints, blocked nose and headaches as well as generally feeling awful. Periods are heavy and painful with clotting for about seven-nine days. Cold Symptoms usually last 5-7days. GP tried to treat heavy periods with Tranexamic acid but I reacted with severe mouth ulcers (half tongue size) Again these ulcers would appear around day three. Now resolved by stopping the meds but heavy periods have returned. The symptoms are to regular for coincidence, can anyone help?

I don't have answers for you, just a thought. When I get sick, it's usually in the middle of my period. Although I haven't researched it, I believe that my immune system is lower at that time.

Probably totally normal, but weird. Hope you get the answers that you were looking for.

Right before my period starts I start getting sinus problems. I get the sinus headaches, ears bug me, nasal drip, blah feeling etc. I am not sure why, but I get it too.

Good to know I'm not the only one, but sorry you too feel rough. Let me know what your doc thinks...

I have had 8-9 day periods since my 20's with HUGE painfull clots and heavy bleeding. I was so worn out and tired all the time. OB/GYN tested thyroid, iron, ultrasounds, you name it..all normal. He said that my body has to work very hard to replace the blood lost, which leaves me tired.

I am so glad I am not the only one for the last 8 months or so i get these awful flu/cold symptoms right about when i get my period or exactly one week before, I thought it was due to taking poor care of myself because I am a college student so I am always working and studying long hours and staying up all night writing term papers but it has only started this year
its truly miserable my symptoms normally consist of

Im so glad I found this site. I have the same symptoms like most of you women who posted here. A day or two prior to my period, my sinus or allergies gets really bad, runny nose, sneezing, headaches. I told my Dr. about it, but she did not offer a solution. Please help...
