I've really noticed something recently. I know this is probably tmi for the guys but is it possible that my cycle is making this stuff worse? It seems like every time I get ready to have a cycle, my mrsa flares up in the worst possible way, especially during times of pms. Terri or LMB, any thoughts on this one or is it just my imagination?

Well it could be, let me donsome research, I will get back with you!

From where I can see some docotrs think there could be a correlation. Others do not . they are agreeing that if you do have an autoimmune disease , periods can increase the flares...sorry that's all I know right now. I will continue to check it out. Love, Terri

Terri, just keep digging and I'll see if I can get a straight answer from either my surgeon or obgyn.
