    Would you go out with your boys and leave your sick girlfriend at home to fend for herself?

    Especially if she caught the cold from sitting out in the cold at a football game for over 3 hours?!

    Technically, the science doesn't add up. Let's say you picked up the cold at kickoff. From the time a cold virus enters the nose, it takes 10-12 hours for the viral reproductive cycle to be completed and for new cold virus to be released in nasal secretions. This interval is called the incubation period.

    Cold symptoms can only begin after virus is first produced in the nose at about 11-12 hours. The time from the beginning of the infection to the peak of symptoms is typically 36-72 hours.

    Therefor, your boyfriend is correct. It was impossible for you to show and feel symptoms this early, as it has only been 9 hours at most, and more likely, less, and as he correctly inferred, you are only trying to keep him on lockdown.
