will headcold affect IUI?

I woke up today with the beginnings of a headcold, dh cold started Monday night....will rebut cancel an IUI for that? Will dh sperm be effected, going to tell him to lay off the meds till after U/s tomorrow to determine Iui date.

I knew I.should have been taking more vit C this weekend, we were at an event up in NH....lots people, dry air, just a haven for a cold virus to find new victims! Hindsight is 20/20 right?

Re: will headcold affect IUI?

  • I can tell you that my DH has a head cold & I called the day before he was dropping off his SA - they said that the over-the-counter cold medicine would not affect it.  They were concerned about a fever - she actually mentioned 100 or over.

    Unfortunately I don't know what it will do to your eggs.  Call them, the ladies there are so nice.

  • Don't think that headcold will effect IUI, but febrile illness (such as flu) might.  Wishing you all the best on your IUI and hope that you and YH recover quickly!

  • I think it's ok, and I would let my DH take the meds. You don't want the headcold to get worse. Lots of fluids...good luck!

     

  • I had the flu and supposedly the antibiotics I was on will help my IUI by clearing anything up down there I didn't know about!  Otherwise, I don't know the answer.  Just wanted to say GL on your IUI!!!
