Brief Answer:
For now no!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these chills. Right now, there are no red flags and there is lilt etc work about. These chills are highly unlikely to be related to an infection and may be related to hormonal changes than anything else. For now, monitoring alone and reporting any new symptoms is the recommended plan of action. Keep me posted.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
