Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
Common cold usually does not affect the fetus.
If you are suffering, then it can spread to the fetus.
Viral infection can spread easily, you can get it too.
Influenza can affect the baby.
It is too early to catch the infection before fertilization.
But it is safer to wait a few days or for the next cycle.
I hope this information will be helpful.
