Sounds like an unreasonable over-reaction. There is far too much hysteria about swine flu. While it could possibly become a serious health concern, at present it is a milder illness than the ordinary flu that turns up each year, and has so far killed less people than the ordinary flu does.
Now, your friend has been asked to look out for symptoms of swine flu at his school. He considers this to be a major personal emergency, in whih he needs the direct close personal support of all his friends ? Ah, Pul-eease !
He is over-reacting frantically. Don't take this seriously, and leave him to cool down and realize how silly he is being. Why is this silly man so certain that he requires hand-holding just because h's been asked to report possible symptoms of a probably mild illness in others ? He hasn't received warnings of an imminent tornado or earthquake !
Contrary to the foolish comment of "paranoid" there is nothing selfish or bad about your very sensible wish to protect your potential pregnancy, even though the faint risk of an attack of the flu is probably not serious either. YOu have every right to protect yourself anyhow, from a posible avoidable infection.
