Scientists say when men get the flu - they tend to have more aggressive symptoms and can feel sicker.

That's because men have less estrogen in their system.

The study found estrogen actually reduced the virus in female cells.

So ladies - you may have to be a little more sympathetic when your guy gets sick.
