PMS is caused by changes in hormone balance during the menstrual cycle. These cause and symptoms are very similar to those of very early pregnancy.

Some women may assume that they are pregnant when they are only sick with cold. On the other hand, others may think that they are having a cold when they are actually pregnant. If you take medicine for a cold, it is unlikely that it will have a significant effect on the fetus during this period, so you don’t have to worry too much.
