My bros girlfriend is claiming today to have the flu again. That's the 3rd time since christmas. Is this possible or is she hiding something...like a pregnancy?

  • Well, no, she can't have the flu virus 3 times in 3 weeks, but she could easily have it once and simply not given it enough time, rest or meds to get better... And of course, yes, she could just be using it as an excuse... But how would anyone online really know?

  • Most people who think they have the flu really don't. It's actually kind of rare. My Doctor hubby just enlightened me on this subject a few days ago. It's usually more pneumonia or common colds and viruses.

  • yeah I had the flu.. I am going to tell you! The flu has about a month recovery time. Your very weak and still confused for a good 3 weeks after. I am thinking she doesn't have the flu. Look up the flu, I had it once in 30 yrs and that was 1 yr ago. She is lying, pregnant maybe I can't answer that.

  • Very unlikely. If she even had the flu. Most people think they have the flu and it is something else. The true flu is very rare. But if she did have it she may just not have given it time to fully go away and it could be worsening again.
