Illness and TTC

Does anyone know if a cold or flu effects ones ability to conceive in a given month? The past couple of days I've had a sore throat and general iky feeling (though I'm not running a fever). I'm wondering if this can effect ovulation (I have short cycles so if I'm ovulating it'll be soon)... Anyone know?

Re: Illness and TTC

Being sick can delay ovulation according to the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility". Anything that causes stress on your body can delay ovulation.
