World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

70. Cold virus questions, how soon to have sex?

The discussion below is another example of how little most people know about common cold care. So many questions because most people have very little information about it. When we don’t understand how the virus works, we don’t know what to do, what is ok or not.

Germs! we are not sure what the exact definition is, but we include cold viruses as some of them.

I like the answer about changing the bed sheets to clean ones. It just fits in with normal good hygiene, which has been shown for centuries has a general beneficial impact on good health, even when we don’t understand why.

And, even though the virus are invisible to us, and most people don’t really understand what a virus is anyway, we can imagine the “germs” (technical definition?) all over everything.

This is a common sickness YUCK factor. If I don’t know what to do, at least be clean, and wash my hands, my body, my clothes, my bedsheets. That always makes us feel better.

But really… that’s gross to think of this cold sufferer inviting a partner to have sex on a bed that he/she was sleeping sick on for the previous 3 days. Posting name is “Yummy Cookies” but that sounds more like a guy to me…..Ewwwwwww….  (my gender prejudices showing here)

On the other hand, perhaps it illustrates the bad side effect of a cold being to drain one’s energy. Being exhausted and worn down from a cold that drags on, often depletes one’s energy. So in survival mode, we want to see how much we can conserve energy and skip normal tasks.

The sufferer was exhausted the week before, which was probably not all from the actual cold virus invasion, since incubation is about 2 days for cold viruses.  More likely, the tiredness ran down his/her immune system to be more susceptible to the cold.
On the third hand, at least Yummy Cookies asked advice first, so maybe I switch my gender guess.

Yummy cookies Yummy cookies

I had common cold and symptoms dissappeared a day and a half ago? Am I good for sex yet?

I’m worried I might still be contageous.
I think I was tired a lot the week before this one, so that might have been the dorment phase.
I had enough energy to go out and exercise yesterday. I think I feel fine this morning.
If I do have sex, should I change the bed?

Additional Details

Oh, I just had a small cough. Is that bad?

  • I think you looking to far into this. If you feel fine and up for it go head.
  • Not ready.I’d wait at least 3 days after the sore is totally gone.

    Of course change the bed.
