m having low grade fever and periods? i am 30 years old and have a 1 year old baby
Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Have you recorded the temperature ?
User :   ya.. its 99.5 it started 2 days before periods .. i dont have any other symptoms besides achy back and legs
Doctor :   How long do your periods last ?
User :   4-5 days
Doctor :   ok, I would ask you to treat the fever symptomatically with TYLENOL til the period gets over
Doctor :   if the fever persists after the periods too then you have to be examined to find the focus of the infection
User :   i usually do not have cramps during periods but this time I experienced very bad cramps..does it relate?
Doctor :   yes, could be , uterine contractions cause changes in hemodynamics and cause fever
Doctor :   and the cramps this time would be due hormonal imbalance
Doctor :   you are welcome
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me , kindly provide your feedback
Doctor :   Bye for now
Doctor :   take care
