Can getting sick throw your cycle off?


The day I was supposed to start my period, I came down with the flu. I’m currently 5 days late and still sick. My period was also early last month so it could be off a little bit anyway.

Other than sore breasts I’ve had no other major pms symptoms but that’s probably because I’ve been focusing on my flu symptoms more. Trying to decide if it’s worth taking a pregnancy test or just wait until I’m not sick anymore and see if I start my period 🤷🏼‍♀️
