I know i have posted before about a cold that i felt i had coming i followed all the advice and thankfully shook it off
but 2 weeks ago my aunt and i both caught a cold, her's was much worse than mineas i could still breathe
i shook my cold off last wednesday and my aunt got rid of hers a good week before that.
Now we were both ok on friday but now today we have both came down with colds
i cant breathe, im stuffy and so dehydrated i keep drinking, i feel weak and slightly sick. I keep sleeping as im drained.
My aunt has all the same but she had a bad throat with her's.
What im asking is how is this possible?
i only shook thecold of wednesday an now i feel like im a deaths door.
Is this at all possible?
I thought maybe mine was to do with the fact i started Yazmin on tuesday and its made my period nearly now 2 days longer and im much more hevaier, an i read somewhere that combined pill can give you upper respitory infections.
Can anyone help on this?

The pill *giving* you an upper respiratory infection isn't possible: those infections are viral.

And it complicating an infection sounds iffy to me at best.

So, I'd just take care of yourself for now: if these symptoms last more than a few days, give your GP a call or a visit. If you do have an infection, you'll need to have it treated.
